Free music that's legal to share Show more
Please don't further spread the myth that *all* #creativecommons music is non commercial.
COMMERCIAL USE-FRIENDLY CC LICENSES:
CC BY-SA (closest to GPL)
and in some cases, CC BY-ND (such as playing at a venue without turning the track into something else)
basically anything without NC.
I'm no lawyer, but read the licenses/CC website!
The #NC clause in #CreativeCommons licensing is both a blessing and a curse. It addresses one of the most common reasons artists balk at #FreeCulture licensing ("but what if corporations profit from my work and I don't?"), and artists that dip their toes in with NC licenses often end up switch to a free culture license like BY-SA. But it also makes it more complicated to explain to people what they can do with the resulting commons of works. Pros and cons.
