Now That's Creative
YouTube just lowered the barrier of entry for online video a little bit more — at least from a legal standpoint. The site has introduced a Creative Commons licensing option that allows users to remix existing videos without worrying about copyright infringement violations. On the flip side, video-artists-in-training can make their material available for individuals and companies to remix for commercial use. YouTube’s year-old video editor tool provides access to the Creative Commons library, where more than 10,000 videos exist from organizations such as C-SPAN, Voice of America, Public. Resource.org and Al Jazeera. Any video made using Creative Commons content will automatically credit all sources.
