Using CreativeCommons To Help Your Message Spread

Last week I talked about how Psy was able to allow “Gangnam Style” to become the biggest YouTube video of all time by waiving his copyright. While say wasn’t enforcing his copyright, which allowed his song to spread, he could have used a CreativeCommons license to get the same thing done. The above video explains CreativeCommons in a simple and easy to understand way (even though it’s aimed at the Arab world). Our copyright laws are obsolete and hold back the ability to let your music spread, adapt to the times by using a CreativeCommons license.
