In the spirit of the upcoming Building an Australiaisan Commons conference here in Australia exciting stories of Creative Commons’ proliferation in the Asia-Pacific are spurring quite a buzz. An inspiring story out of New Zealand over the weekend that CCANZ let us know about; local NZ band Knives at Noon were on Channel 3 talking about why they release their music under BY-NC-SA 3.0 New Zealand licence.
In the article keyboardist Oli Wilson says they built a fanbase through their MySpace but wanted to see their music have a ‘life of its own’. As Oliver says, “…we relinquish the right for people to copy it, they’re allowed to burn it, and they’re allowed to download it, and they’re allowed to sample and remix it.” In the lead up to their first national tour (in New Zealand) it is pretty awesome to have a string of remixes attached to your songs, especially when they are from producers both in New Zealand and overseas.
