Creative Commons: The Power of Open

A couple of weeks ago Creative Commons launched a new book called "The Power of Open". It is available for free from their website here. Estimating the number of works licensed under Creative Commons at, at least 400 million at the end of 2010, this book provides accounts of individual creators and their experiences in using these open licenses. With respect to music in particular accounts are given by Australian songwriter and musician Yunyu, DJ Vadim, Dan Zaccagnino of Indaba Music, Curt Smith (formerly of Tears for Fears), Scott Nickrenz of The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, and Sylvain Zimmer of Jamendo.

It is a short read and worth the time to peruse. Take a look.
