, the non-profit organization promoting the creation and sharing of creative works, has announced that it has partnered with Wired Magazine to distribute a CD of Creative Commons licensed songs from popular artists such as the Beastie Boys, David Byrne, and others. Unlike other albums of mainstream music, the songs on this album come under a license that allows users to sample the music and create their own works derived from the songs. This means MacJammers can grab the Creative Commons Wired songs and use them in their own works.
The CC Wired CD will be released for free with the November issue of Wired Magazine, and all of the songs on the CD will be made available at Creative Commons' website for the album. We plan to have some fun promotions when the CD is release, so stay tuned to MacJams and Creative Commons for more info!
