- The Funny Music Project
Hi, and welcome to the Open Licensed Music Podcast, the show where we highlight music from artists who let you share their music. I'm Ralph Wacksworth, and today's episode is featuring electronic music.
Luceds - Going Steampunk (3:20)
Adibudi - Special sounds for special girl (Final version) (3:04)
Melodia F (1:20)
That was Luceds - Going Steampunk by Luceds, which was available from SoundCloud. After that was Adibudi - Special sounds for special girl (Final version) by Adibudi, which is available from Jamendo. Then we had Edge by Mystery Mammal and finishing up was Melodia F by BrunoXe, which are both available from SoundCloud. All four of the songs in this set are licensed under an Attribution license.
There seems to be a lot of confusion about which license to choose when publishing something that you want to open license. Now, right upfront, I'm going to say that I'm not an attorney and this is not to be construed as legal advice. However, wonder no more, because there are a number of good guides out there. If your work is of a creative nature, the Creative Commons licenses are very popular and easy to choose from. Just visit http://creativecommons.org/choose/ to get started. They'll let you choose the terms and conditions under which you want to license your work. And that popularity thing I mentioned earlier? That's one of the big advantages of Creative Commons licenses. Not all licenses can legally have their stuff combined together. Many licenses explicitly state which other licenses they can be combined with. Well, because the Creative Commons licenses are so easy to use and so popular, there's a whole ecosystem of compatible-licensed stuff that, by licensing your work under a Creative Commons license, other people can combine your work with to build more cool stuff.
That said, the Creative Commons licenses are generally not recommended for computer programs, with the exception of the CC0 license which is just plain awesome anyway, because there are other licenses which are generally better-suited to licensing code. For a generally easy-to-read guide to available source code licenses, check out the Free Software Foundation's license guide at https://gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html which has a very large list of licenses, the terms they cover, how they can be combined, etc. Personally I'm a big fan of CC0 and the zlib license, but there are a whole bunch of other very good licenses on there for different purposes.
Anyway, it's about time I quit yakking and get back to music.

Today's app-of-the-day is PuTTY, a cross-platform terminal, telnet, and SSH client. It gives you the ability to open terminal windows to many different types of command-line terminal servers, encrypted and not, network and serial. If you've been in IT for very much time, you've probably used this program at one point in time or another, and if you haven't yet, you probably will. What surprised me is that it's also available for platforms other than Microsoft Windows now. I'm used to using command-line ssh from Linux, but apparently now PuTTY is available for Linux, BSD, Symbian, Classic Mac OS, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, and Windows Mobile. It's available for download at www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty

So, that's all for today. Remember - piracy of commercial music only proves your dependence on that model and justifies further censorship and restriction. So don't pirate it - replace it with something better. Listen to open licensed music, donate to the artists behind it, go to concerts, and buy music from artists whose record labels don't see you as their enemies. Support artists where your support actually counts.
