#CC10: Creative Commons is 10 years old!

Creative Commons licenses have been created 10 years ago. The goal of these licenses was to make easier the distribution and the use of content in the digital world, and to offer a legal alternative to creators. Because the founders of Jamendo agreed to this idea, they decided to create Jamendo in 2005 using CC licenses.

So Jamendo is also celebrating this 10-year anniversary with a Top 10 playlist!

We looked back at these 8 years of existence for Jamendo; we have been blessed by the talent of so many artists that it’s hard to choose! They have made our catalog a very rich and diverse world of free music. Thanks to them, we were able to select popular songs created by artists from different parts of the world to create a playlist very diverse in terms of music genres. The most important was to choose artists that support and believe in Creative Commons, and all of these artists have promoted the concept for years. Here they are:

 #CC10: the "CC10Musicians" mobile app project from Korea!

As you know, Creative Commons are turning 10 years old this month! CC affiliates from all over the world are celebrating this week (Dec 9 - 16) the big #CC10 event!

CC Korea is coming up with something fun and different: creating an application, first to be released on iPhone then Android, introducing some great CC artists and providing their music in streaming. It's a non-commercial project, and created by CC Korea volunteers.

We teamed up with them to provide some of the content, because indeed we have the coolest CC musicians on Jamendo! ;)

The "CC10Musicians" app will allow you to listen to the selected artists' work on live streaming, and share some spread-worth music with your Facebook and Twitter friends. Celebrate the open artists by letting all your friends know about them!
