How and Why to Let Others Remix/Mashup Your Work

Saturday, March 21
12:30PM - 1:30PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 13AB
Austin Convention Center

Remix and mashup media and culture are gaining prominence, but continue to face serious legal hurdles. That's because these artists rely on the ability to sample or build on the work of others, and most music isn't licensed in a way that lends itself to this purpose. Many musicians would be happy if their own work were used in remix or mashup, but just don't know how to make their work available for downstream collaboration while still maintaining ownership and the ability to profit. Learn about how to release your work under a Creative Commons license that allows others to use it, how to do so and still make money, and why it's important.
