Dear John,
Are you really, really sure that ANY commercial use is possible with the kind of licence Magnatune has (by-nc-sa)? The licence specfically states NONCOMMERCIAL!

Best regards,
Cezary Ostrowski

John Buckman

Any non-commercial use is allowed -- the point I was trying to make is that the content in the new work isn't relevant to whether reuse is allowed (ie, a small sample vs large sections). But, you're right, the new work can only be presented (for free, under the CC license) if it's non-commercial. Of course, if it is commercial, they can just license the music using our online licensing engine...

Dear John,
I'm not a lawyer, but I thought that it's the artist who decides about the licence, not the magnatune online licencing engine :)
But, if what you say is true than parhaps we should talk to Mr Lessig that all this stuff with CC variety of licences is absolutely useless, and that only one CC licence could exist - that is CC (wws) - CC we will see :)

Best regards,
Cezary Ostrowski

Dear John,
This one is a bit of subject, but you look like a musician that plays some classical instrument. Is that right?

P.S. I like the haircut :)
