Ten Tracks to Sync - Vol. 2

After writing Ten Tracks to Sync - Vol. 1, I decided to put my money where my mouth is and use one of the songs I had selected in a video I was making.

I used Ergo Phizmiz's track in a short promotional video I was making for a book called Collaborative Futures.

In the process, I learned a few important lessons.

The video that I made is considered a derivitive work (or 'adaptation') of the song I picked, according to the legal description of a Creative Commons 3.0 license:

"For the avoidance of doubt, where the Work is a musical work, performance or phonogram, the synchronization of the Work in timed-relation with a moving image ("synching") will be considered an Adaptation for the purpose of this License."

Also, if the original Work (the song) has a 'Share-Alike' license, any derivitive works must share that same type of CC license.

This was a problem, because Collaborative Futures (and all its related materials) already had a different type of CC license than Ergo's track; Attribution-ShareAlike and Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike respectively.

I really liked the song and wanted to keep it in the video, so I contacted Ergo and asked him if he'd be willing to change the license type of his track... and he agreed! Score one for copyright alternatives!

So remember kids, when syncing up these jams to your sweet vids, make sure that your derivitive has a license that jives with that of the original work. And sometimes all you have to do is ask.

With that, here's ten more instrumentals from the Archives ready for you to slap into your timeline. Thanks to those of you who made suggestions of tracks to include; please keep them coming!
