Actually, I will be providing my MIDI arrangements under a CC
attribution license. The question is how people are facilitating the use
of their work ... do you assume that every potential user can deal with the
minimal requirements of maintaining the link to the CC license, or are
people doing "howto" pages?
I'm thinking of past practice, going back 10 years, where folks
freely "borrowed" MIDI files as low-bandwidth background music for their
personal web pages. (Strictly speaking, this use OUGHT to be considered
"private", or otherwise exempt from copyright restrictions as fair use, but
we now live on this particular version of planet Earth.) Many of these
potential users might have trouble figuring out how to comply.
So I just thought that others have been here already, and could
provide links to their sites, to show how they deal with it.
