Network Effects of Creative Commoning

Jason Schultz over at LawGeek has an excellent piece on Creative Commons licensing: "The Network Effects of Creative Commoning: Why Silver Will Eventually Be More Valuable Than Gold."

Enter the brilliance of the CC sampling license. Say you're an up-and-coming artist looking for a backbeat track to sample for your new song. You see two options: (1) a massive library of historically copyrighted works (All Rights Reserved) and (2) a much smaller but growing library of CC licensed works (Some Rights Reserved But Always Ok To Sample). […] Option 1 is like a pot of gold with scorpions in it. Option 2 is like a pot of silver.
