Now you are one of the 300,000 600,000+ people and rising who've stumbled across this video of baby screech owls in a wildlife hospital, featuring the song "Heart of the Cat" by prolific FMA hero Ergo Phizmiz off of the Headphonica release Music from the Shoes of Fulcanelli.
The video -- like the music it incorporates -- is Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike licensed. And it's these types of cute animal videos (ok, more than just cute animal videos) that inspire many artists (myself included) to use a CC license that allows for video use, and/or to utilize the CC No Derivatives clause, which explicitly forbids this type of thing without permission (read more at creativecommons.org/about/licenses).
All CC licenses require Attribution (Ergo Phizmiz is credited with a hyperlink in the description), but not in a way that could make it look like the original artist endorses the new work. I mean, for all we know, Ergo Phizmiz hates owls and doesn't want these cute baby owls to be saved. But hopefully he loves them as much as the people who see this video seem to love his music!
