1 of my favorite recording artists there is a French DJ Recording Artist Nytrogen. He still has an entire album "Trance Planet" up from the GW Bush Ear for FREE and it's licensed to Creative Commons.
I've used a number of his tracks in some of my videos over the years. I actually used 3 different tracks in some of my video art this year.
As an artist, I also like to publish some of my works to Creative Commons for FREE, usually for educational purposes, but this year I had published more stuff to Creative Commons than ever, and with almost no restrictions. I will continue to be publishing some of my work to Creative Commons.
