YouTube opens the creative commons

The video sharing site YouTube has started to introduce a feature Wednesday June 1, which allows users to publish their videos under a creative commons license, reports the specialized site Boing Boing. With this license, users are able to reuse a video, copy it, but also to select extracts. If a user makes a "remix", the sources will automatically appear in the final cut.

The U.S. cable television network C-Span, but also channel Al-Jazeera and the Voice of America are among the partners. Ten thousand videos "creative commons" should be available to launch the new service.
