Copyright Free /Creative Commons Music


Because this project is going on the web, please be aware of using copyright free, original, or creative commons music.


There is a newer type of rights reservation called the Creative Commons that gives you more rights to not only use the works yourself but to modify them as well.


There are different categories of uses for the works noted by the type of Creative Commons licensing.


1) Attribution means you can let others copy, distribute, display, and perform copyrighted work and the derivative work based on it but only if they give you credit. So if you use something from Creative Commons attributed work, you need to provide the credit back to the original source.


2) Noncommercial means you can copy, distribute, display, and perform the work but only for noncommercial purposes.


3) No Derivative works means it can be copied, distributed, displayed, and performed but only without making changes to it.


4) Share Alike means you can allow others to distribute derivative works only under a license identical to the license that governs the original work.


The Creative Commons Search site will filter through Google, Yahoo, Flickr, and other media sites to help you find Creative Common items you can incorporate into your presentations.


Some sites to find that are:


Joyce Valenza's excellent list of Copyright free Music sites


Internet Archive


Opsounds --search by genre (more info about using the music here)


Creative Commons CC mixter 


Chris Worth Productions
