CC0 is a public domain dedication that allows creators to waive all copyright and related rights to their work. This means that anyone can use, modify, and distribute the work without restriction.
Here, at cc0music.wtf our goal is to provide a similar resource to the above listed libraries, and become a well-know source for public domain music. This project was funded by the Lil Nouns Dao to help proliferate Nouns and CC0 content. For more information on Lil Nouns visit lilnouns.wtf.
Is CC0 just music and art?
CC0 isn’t just video, images and music — It can be bodies of text, plays, games, or even code written by a developer. The CC0 movement is about building and allowing others to build upon existing work and infrastructure.
This is becoming more and more important as we build a decentralized world, inside of web3. To quickly build, share, and iterate has been key for the expansion of web3, and its underlaying infrastructure.
Why would someone make their work CC0?
There are many reasons one might designate their work as CC0, or Public Domain.
- Allow others to build upon ones existing work.
- To raise awareness or bring attention to their work or themselves as a creator.
- To add to available resources for creators.
