CC-BY-SA background music for your videos

Background music for videos recommended by flickr


If you are interested in adding a soundtrack to your video, there’s lots of great music available through Creative Commons that won’t get you in trouble for copyright infringement.
 If you do use background music, per CC licensing requirements available on Flickr, you’ll need to attribute the music you use by mentioning and linking to the artist, or the CC page you found it on.

Ubuntu wiki is now under a CC-by-SA licence


Choice of License

  • It was originally planned to put material on the wiki into the public domain. However, after extremely wide consultation with the community on this issue, many users objected that they would be unhappy with material contributed by them being used in non-free derivative works. As a result it seems clear that a free sharealike license should be used.

  • The [WWW] CC-By-SA license is a good choice, for many reasons:

    • It is used by the system documentation,

    • It is used by the Ubuntu forums,

    • It is used by the Official Ubuntu Book,

    • It is a popular and well known license.

Flickr Creative Commons Search

Flickr advanced search http://flickr.com/search/advanced/

has three check boxes

  • Only search within Creative Commons licensed photos
  •      Find content to use commercially
  •      Find content to modify, adapt, or build upon

that generate 4 CC search variations

the later one is equivalent to CC-BY-SA
