Use Creative Commons licensing to encourage remixes

Creative Commons is a non-profit making organisation founded in 2001, to provide an alternative copyright system for artists in the digital millennium. On the Wikipedia entry on Creative Commons their focus is stated as 'Expansion of "reasonable", flexible copyright'. The Creative Commons Information Flyer (pdf) explains that CC Licenses are not an alternative to copyright. 'They apply on top of copyright, so you can modify your copyright terms to best suit your needs'. The end result is clearly defined terms of how a work is to be used, and a growing pool of legally remixable and mashable content.

Derek Sivers is the founder of CD Baby and says in his essay on paying, "Don’t forget that there are lots of people like me that like to pay! Appeal to this side of people, giving them a feel-good reason to pay. Tell them what their payment will go to support. Show them how appreciated it is. Some will feel good about paying. It will actually make them happy to give you money. Let them."
