+++ AGNULA launches the "Libre Music" project

The AGNULA IST-Project [0] is proud to announce  its new "Libre Music"
(aka the "muzik" project) project, whose goal  is to create a publicly
accessible database of Libre Music, i.e.   music licensed under either
the Creative Commons [1] licenses or the EFF [2] Open Audio License.

+++

One  of  the objectives of   the AGNULA-IST project is  help spreading
sensibility on  the topics of  Libre Software, with specific attention
paid to  audio/video applications and  content distribution.  In order
to  reach this goal, the AGNULA-IST  project has decided to allocate a
part of  its  resources  to develop  and  host  a publicly  accessible
database of Libre Music, i.e. musical works licensed under either:

- the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 1.0 license [3]

- the Creative Commons Attribution 1.0 license [4]

- the EFF Open Audio License 1.0.1 [5]

We are  not  going to compete  with  other, similar, efforts.   On the
contrary, we   would   like    to     be complementary  to       other
projects/databases who are already working  or are planning to work in
the  same field.   Our development strategy   is driven by this  basic
willness to cooperate and not to compete.

If you  want  to contribute to  our development  effort, feel  free to
subscribe [6] to our development portal [7] and ask  either one of the
`muzik' project  [8]  administrators  (Davide Fugazza [9]  and  Andrea
Glorioso [10]) to be  added to the project  - you will  be able to use
our CVS, bug tracking and task manager tools.

If you, your company and/or your organization is interested in sharing
its archives of  Libre Music by  publishing  it on AGNULA  Libre Music
database   once  this will  be  complete, and/or   if you want further
information,   feel free to   send  your questions, suggestions and/or
criticisms to:

  <users a lists.agnula.org> [11]

for general discussion, and/or to:
                             
  <info a agnula.org>

for general, info-line style questions on the AGNULA project.
