Artist encourages others to use his music in their artby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
St. Paul, Minn. — When Minneapolis songwriter Jeremy Messersmith released his new EP, "Paper Moon," he sent out a Twitter message asking fans to remix it. That's because Messersmith released the new album under a Creative Commons license. The license gives users permission to share creations ranging from software to songs while avoiding standard copyright restrictions around sharing.
Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer talked with Messersmith about his decision.
