Made with Creative Commons: A book on open business models

CC Summit 2011 Warsaw by Kristina Alexanderson, CC BY 2.0

Creative Commons is an organization that created licenses that we use widely at the Free Music Archive. They've just announced that they're writing a book about open business models, and they are asking for a little push during the final stretch of their campaign.

They're hard at work putting together an ebook about open business models. The book will spotlight businesses, creators, and organizations that use Creative Commons as part of their business model, and explaining how CC produces not just a media commons, but can also work to promote and produce economic and social value. In the end, there'll be not just an ebook, but also a wealth of articles outlining open business models and how they have been shown to work, and an online interactive tool that will help people design their own open business models.

Want to chip in? Head over to their Kickstarter for more info!

Happy Netlabel Day!

Well, it's finally here - the world's very first Netlabel Day! FMA is proud to be a partner in this endeavor to turn people on to new music, labels, and artists! We interviewed Manuel Silva, the organizer, on Radio Free Culture earlier this year about it. One of our FMA volunteers put together a playlist of songs she digs from some participating netlabels that are represented on the Free Music Archive. 

There are a ton of artists and netlabels NOT on FMA, so you should check out their latest releases on the Netlabel Day website!

Still want more to download, stream and share? CerebralRift and Pilot Eleven put together podcasts for the occasion.

Radio Free Culture #54: Premixing the Vitamin Pets

WFMU and the Free Music Archive are proud to bring you a fresh episode of Radio Free Culture, a bi-weekly podcast exploring issues at the intersection of digital culture and the arts. 

In this episode, Cheyenne Hohman, RFC host and current Director of the FMA, spoke to Vito Petruzzelli from the group Vitamin Pets, about their recent "Premix" Contest. The band released 69 stems from their most recent album, "Horse Helpers of the High Country," before the record's release date - with an open call for "premixes," that is - tracks that were produced using the stems before anyone (except the Vitamin Pets themselves) knew what the songs should have sounded like! 

FMA Volunteer Ethan has compiled a few tracks from the premix album, "The Refreshingly Hothouse Porch," as well as from the Vitamin Pets new release, "Horse Helpers of the High Country," so you can listen and compare!

WFMU and the Free Music Archive are proud to bring you a fresh episode of Radio Free Culture, a bi-weekly podcast exploring issues at the intersection of digital culture and the arts. 

In this episode, Cheyenne Hohman, RFC host and current Director of the FMA, spoke to Meik Michalke, one of the organizers of the Open Music Contest, a Creative-Commons fueled music contest that culminates in a concert, rather than the other way around. They're currently getting the word out about the contest and raising funds to bring international acts to their stage later in 2015.
