YouTube and Creative Commons License

About a month and a half ago, YouTube unveiled a new feature for video licensing that enabled users to mark their videos as Creative Commons Attribution. This allows other YouTube users to remix, dub, or otherwise alter the videos so long as the author attributers the original video(s) underneath the remixed or altered version.

This opens up a whole new world for Youtube users as it adds an infinite amount of creativity, alteration, and downright fun to the YouTube experience that didn’t exist before. It also allows for creativity in creating videos simply for the purpose of other’s to then create their own art form and media out of them.

We look forward to seeing what will come out of this new licensing option!
