@jkj_yuio You’re welcome! Thank you for the kind words! I hope a few of them are able to help!
@Dannii Ah, yes. I haven’t edited that in awhile. It’s a very interesting point you bring up and it’s something I’ve really been torn about the last couple years.
I really, really, really want to use the Attribution 4.0 license.The main thing stopping me is the license’s Share Terms where it states: You can copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format.
I work hard on this music and I want to make sure it stays free for everyone. My big fear is that someone takes the music, packages it and sells it as a library or resource pack. Or even just sells it as part of a compilation album that could include music from other CC artists just to listen to or something. I could just be overly paranoid, but I’ve seen some pretty sketchy things go down before when it comes to resources of all kinds.
This is why I started packaging the music with my own custom signed Materials Release forms. They spell out what you can do and can’t do. Literally the only thing I restrict is what I mentioned above, redistributing the music or selling it stand alone.
Thanks for the link to that site! I may go on there and post a question just to see what the answer is.
I may just edit that portion of my site’s FAQ because I had forgotten I wrote that a couple years ago. I really would like to use that CC license, because just like you say, it’s a clearly defined institution and everyone knows what’s what.
I like to tell people to think of my music as a track you could license from AudioJungle, except there’s no up-front fee to use it. Instead of royalty free music, I make “free royalty free” music. It’s as if you purchased a lease to use it, but I’m really just giving it to you.
I don’t know. I have a lot of thinking to do over this. Thanks again for posting that link and your response! Like I said, I had forgotten that was there and it’s best to take care of something like this sooner rather than later. I’ll pop on there soon and see what they say!
