Legal To Sample, Legal To Share: The Creative Commons Wired CD

The Wired CD is the first official compilation of musical works released under the new Creative Commons’ Sampling licences. These licences mean that the works can be legally copied and sampled for non-commercial purposes. (In some cases, they can even be sampled for commercial purposes – provided they aren’t used in commercials.) The artists who’ve contributed to it include the Beastie Boys, David Byrne, Matmos, Dan The Automator, Le Tigre, The Rapture, Danger Mouse, Chuck D, Thievery Corporation, Cornelius, Spoon, Zap Mama, DJ Dolores, Paul Westerberg, The Morning Jacket and Gilberto Gil. You can go out and pick it up for free with the November issue of Wired, or alternatively you can download this Bit Torrent. (via Boing Boing)
