ccMixter : creative commons in action
MetadataShow full item record
ccMixter.org, an online remix community that uses Creative Commons licenses to protect and promote their work, is a unique site of musical activity whose discourse is shaped by an egalitarian ideology. However, simultaneously exists a hierarchical structure in which some remixes are considered better than others. This report explores the coexistence of these two paradigms, and seeks to frame the discussion within the context of current IP policy politics, the open source movement, and fundamental shifts that the Internet has caused in communication.
