    Hi Tim!

    I was just wondering what kind of copyright protection or creative commons license you use for the recordings on your website.

    I have never stated it, so thanks for asking… I have been thinking about it as I am in the process of setting up a little netlabel and the conclusion I came to was to use a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial 3.0 New Zealand license:

    You are free to:
    Share — to copy, distribute and transmit the work
    Remix — to adapt the work

    Under the following conditions:
    Attribution. You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work).
    Noncommercial. You may not use this work for commercial purposes.

    Generally speaking I have no issues with commercial use but it is dependent on context, hence the requirement to ask…

    Here is the legal code:

    Hey Tim, Erick from Ohio here. I am the fellow building the recording studio/cabin on a trailer. You had made mention of it on your Feb. 4th 2010 blog I believe. Actually I didn’t realize you had covered it until just today. In the process of building it, I kinda fell off the map as far as communications are concerned! Anyhow, I am proud to say that the work has been, if slower than expected, sure and steady. The living quarters (kitchen,bathroom and loft) are all but finished. So now soon, the “studio” portion of the cabin will be underway. A day that at times seemed would never come is just around the corner. I would love to share some current photos with the blog readers!

    Peace! …Erick from Ohio ….
