Awesome Flickr/CC tribute


If you’ve spent any time surfing photo collections at Flickr or elsewhere, you’ll certainly appreciate Jonathan Coulton’s music video produced with CC licensed images found on Flickr:

I won’t explain too much about it here, except to say that it’s an example of what Creative Commons licensing makes possible. I was able to do this without calling any lawyers or receiving any cease and desist letters, because all these photos were published on Flickr with CC licenses that let me know it was OK to use them this way. No doubt you’ve finished your Christmas shopping already, but if you forgot to get something for The World, maybe you should take a moment to CC license something you created and release it into the wild…

Also check out Jonathan’s other songs, all CC licensed and funny.
