Jazzy Al gives you some ‘3.0 Unported’ lovin’

I don’t know who else is doing this but Al Jazeera has launched a site offering high quality news footage under Creative Commons licenses.
Their ‘Creative Commons Repository’ is offering at the moment a number of clips from Gaza under an ‘Attribution 3.0 Unported’ licence which apparently means bloggers and filmmakers are allowed to use, remix and edit with attribution.
I wonder who else is doing this and how soon will there be enough of this for me to do my own web global news video?

    Just read your Guardian piece. Good luck with going home! I’m looking forward to your updates. I very much enjoyed your book and attended one of your speaking events in Sydney when I was there a few years ago. I will be watching this blog closely from now on.

    Salam,
    LOL, I’m thinking of starting an Internet petition to have you rename this blog, Last Of The Gay Iraqis. Ha ha ha ha ha.

    PS: WordPress although it’s a pain in the bleep to learn and install is better than Blogger.
