Creative Commons and Pump Audio share a common goal of giving artists the freedom to license their creative works as they see fit.
Pump Audio is all about giving independent musicians a fair deal by connecting them with producers in TV, advertising and the Web who are clamoring for original and legal music to accompany their creations. By working with Creative Commons, Pump can provide even more independent musicians with greater commercial licensing options for their music.
Pump Audio has introduced an online badge for artists, allowing them to designate on any Web page, artist blog or MySpace profile that their music is available for commercial licensing through Pump Audio. Artists can pair their new Pump Audio badges with similar badges for their Creative Commons copyright licenses, enabling them to promote both their commercial and non-commercial licensing preferences.> Find out more about Creative Commons
