There is some good Creative Commons news from Denmark. KODA, THE Danish society that administers Danish and international music copyrights, has approved a one year trial of the attribution-noncommercial license.
They pride themselves on being part of the front runners when it comes to interacting with Creative Commons licensing. But even so, attribution hasn’t been picked up. Weird, especially from our point of view (us being a wav sample archive).
It was really just a question of time, before CC licenses would be partially accepted (officially). It hardly makes sense, that an artist, can’t publish own creations (either as promotion or simply for sharing) without taking money for it.
Hopefully this will be a little step towards getting some scope into the black and white game of copyright.
Oh, interestingly enough, you have to fill out a .pdf form, sign it and send it in, if you were to take on CC.
A couple of statements from the terms(loosely translated – paragraph 5):
Nice to know. Finally:
Spot the hint feces? Well, we still see this as a step foreward – but no one is making the transition easy. No reason to take on Creative Commons if they aren’t gonna accept the actual use, and help artists, which is their actual job.
