This post makes some important points about how independent musicians are using the creative commons license to introduce people to their music, and how that can be a huge benefit for video producers.

This essentially bypasses all the traditional music industry red tape, like paying performance royalties for instance.

From an indie artist’s point of view, like myself, creative commons licenses enable us to self-publish with no middle-men or lawyers, via the Internet. For me, that is ideal since I would much rather be apart of the world of Internet publishing than the “music business”.

If you are new to the subject of music royalties, this is an excellent video by Dave Olsen, a music teacher at McNally Smith:

Although I have a college degree in music business I have moved on to enjoy being a Blogger, Webmaster and content creator much more than I did playing the role of musician in the complex and odd world of the music industry.

Thankfully I am able to connect directly with you through this Website without needing much more than a blog and Google.

Peace,

Dan-O
