Very nice remix Speck

I think one of the ‘noncommercial’ samples you mention is mine. I assumed it’s noncommercial with the normal CC license, but can be used commercially when obtained a ccplus license. If that makes sense… and please correct me if I’m wrong.

Martijn is correct. ccPlus is a commercial use license option added to the regular CC BY or CC BY-NC license. So basically, if a person wants to use a track beyond it’s designated CC license, the purchase of a ccPlus license allows this to happen. Here’s a better explanation.

p.s. Would you like me to add the ‘ccPlus’ tag to this song?

Thanks for clearing that up Kara! Appreciated.

Still confused. If the ccPlus is a commercial option shouldn’t it be separate from as opposed to in addition to a non-commercial one?

Also, didn’t I read that a mix cannot be ccPlus if any of the included samples are not ccPlus? And is a ccPlus ‘tag’ the only indicator that a track has the ccPlus licensing option? In other words - if Martijn’s sample is tagged ccPlus then it is ccPlus even though it’s also licensed as non-commercial?

I’m beginning to understand. I should not think of ccPlus as a license type but rather a portal/option to obtain a license type (commercial), regardless of how it’s already licensed. Am I getting close?

Hmm… but if a tune is CC ánd commercial use is allowed, then why purchase a ccplus license?

I assume you mean if it’s CC BY? The main reason would be so it can be used for commercial purposes without attribution (i.e. a tv commercial). And then sometimes companies, etc. will want to buy the ccPlus license to feel more secure the legality of the license or to donate $ to the artists.

Ah yes, I overlooked the attribution-part. Thanks Kara!

Just one more question Kara, I hope you don’t mind. I just added a new remix (Coffee Bar Duet). The source (piano by Jeris) is not ccplus. However, I did license my bass(sample) under ccplus. Is that ok (and fair)?

Thanks for your time!

I’m happy to answer questions! I started a forum post so future questions can be posted there. In this case, no, it can not be ccPlus unless every single source item is ccPlus. However, you could email Jeris and see if he wants to make his piece ccPlus.

Yeah, you’re totally getting close. Maybe a visit to dig will help… i.e. Javolenus marked this track ccPlus. The tag makes it show up on dig. Click “$ Obtain Commercial License” and it takes ya’ to TuneTrack.net. The person who wants to use the music in a commercial way can now fill out the License Questionaire and get a quote. So yeah, it’s a portal!

So for artists who want to easily license their music for commercial purposes, this makes it easy.

Also, didn’t I read that a mix cannot be ccPlus if any of the included samples are not ccPlus?
You’re right- the entire chain of uploads MUST be ccPlus to be included. We’ve been combing through any uploads marked ccPlus to make sure the chain respects all the stems. Hopefully, this will be automated soon.

…if Martijn’s sample is tagged ccPlus then it is ccPlus even though it’s also licensed as non-commercial?
Yes. So folks can still use his sample for non-commercial purposes, but now if they DO want to use it commercially, they can buy a license.

Please throw more questions my way if ya’ got em’.

Ooo… I should add that even though you used all ccPlus material in this piece, you don’t have to make it ccPlus. It’s always optional. Some people want to monetize their music, some people don’t. It’s always up to the artist.

Love how you used Jack’s bowed part. This mix is exciting in headphones. I like how the tension is brought out of the song… and yet, lots of shades of hope in there. Really cool.

an intriguing mix with incredibly contiguous use of source material.
