Software, websites and tools that help people get the most out of watching internet television and web videos.
YouTube has introduced multiple Creative Commons options for video uploaders and video remixers. This opens up thousands of clips to be used in videos and allows creators to offer more liberal licensing to other users of the site.
The Creative Commons licensing system has been around since 2002 and allowed content creators to easily license their works on the Internet. There are six different Creative Commons licenses available, ranging from Attribution Alone to Attribution + Noncommercial + ShareAlike. All of which make various demands of those using the licensed works.
Creative Commons has been used extensively on photographs, with Flickr now hosting almost 200 million images licensed under the system. But video hasn’t really made the most of the Creative Commons licensing system. At least until now.
