Free Music Archive: The New Happy Birthday Song Contest

Free Music Archive: The New Happy Birthday Song Contest | ICT hints and tips for the EFL classroom | Scoop.it

"The Free Music Archive wants to wish Creative Commons a Happy Birthday with a song. But there's a problem. Although "Happy Birthday To You" is the most recognized song in the English language and its origins can be traced back to 1893, it remains under copyright protection in the United States until 2030. It can cost independent filmmakers $10,000 to clear the song for their films, and this is a major stumbling block hindering the creation of new works of art."

Dear Facebook: Without the Commons, We Lose the Sharing Web | Wired Opinion | Wired.com | ICT hints and tips for the EFL classroom | Scoop.it
Creative Commons isn't just some arbitrary legalese: it was a way the world could build on creatives’ work. Re-use it. Re-mix it. It’s what made the web a place where individuals were not just creators, but part of communities that valued sharing.
