Hi is a relatively new initiative set up to develop the skills of young Scottish film-makers and musicians. We publish our members' work on our website for review and comment - all of this material is CC licensed (Attribution-Non-Commercial-Share-alike as standard, Attribution-Non-Commercial- No-Derivs when members use copyrighted material from our bank of pre-approved copyrighted materials, or as inherited).

We've decided to use ccMixter as a training resource for our members.
During our initial research, I was so impressed with some of the mixes on the site, I sent links to friends so they could enjoy and check out the site also. Their responses were predictably positive.

Several of my friends work in local broadcast radio (commercial) - is there any mechanism that allows them to pick up on certain cc licensed mixes/remixes and promote them (and ccMixter) to a wider audience? Do the fees they pay to e.g.  the performing rights society in the UK, cover them to play CC-licensed material, or if the cc license is non-commercial do they have to approach each individual artist (and previous contributors in the case of a remix/mashup etc) in each individual case to negotiate clearance/fees etc?

Grateful for your help and clarification



Pete Rabjohns
