Creative Commons is in the midst of its annual fundraising campaign. To help support us, Jonathan Coulton has released his greatest hits compilation "JoCo Looks Back" on limited edition CC-branded USB drives that come stocked not only with the standard mixes of the album's songs, but also the unmixed audio stems (i.e. separated vocal track, guitar track, drum track, etc.). All of the material is under a CC BY-NC-SA license and ready to share and remix. The drives are available to people who contribute $50 or more to Creative Commons before December 31.
And if you haven't already seen it, Jesse Dylan (who directed will.i.am's "Yes We Can" music video in support of the Barack Obama campaign) has released a video about Creative Commons, also in support of our fundraising efforts. Entitled "A Shared Culture," the clip is made up of interviews with people like Lawrence Lessig, Jimmy Wales, and Joi Ito, discussing the importance of Creative Commons. The video uses CC-licensed music from Nine Inch Nails, as well as many dozens of CC-licensed photographs taken by people around the world, in order to highlight how CC licenses enable new creativity to be built from older works. See the video here.

The curved bottom of the cup peeks through your drink as the level drops down, moving the “moon” from full to a fingernail-paring sliver.
