Room+D by Sacem (P4 Level 0)
The number of user-generated audio content, such as sound effects, field recordings, musical samples and music pieces, available under Creative Commons licenses has grown significantly in the recent years. Despite there are good quality contents and they are available in online repositories, the creative industries (e.g. videogames, film and music industries) are not yet using much of all this content in their media productions.
This panel represents different perspectives and specific examples that provide a vision on how Creative Commons content can be used by creative industries, create economical return for content creators and how to address specific legal aspects. This panel is a must for music and audio creators, companies and users interested in Creative Commons licenses.
The participants are:
Malcom Bain, specialist in legal issues of open source software and content; Emmanuel Donati, CEO at Jamendo; Roger Subirana, composer and music producer who uses Creative Commons to license his work and Frederic Font, post-doc researcher at MTG and development coordinator at Freesound. The moderator will be Xavier Serra, director at the Music Technology Group (UPF).
Preferential access for Accreditation holders (until 5 min. starting time). Limited seats available.
