YouTube's Creative Commons Licence Lets You Remix Videos

Starting tomorrow, remixers will be able to mash up their favourite YouTube videos using a new Creative Commons licence.

The new open licence lets other people use your CC videos in their projects. You can also use their CC videos in your creations. All the editing will take place in YouTube's online editing tool where you can splice and dice to your heart's content. When you are done, attribution links will appear underneath the newly mashed video.

Al Jazeera and C-SPAN are launch partners and have agreed to release 10,000 Creative Commons videos. The number of available videos is expected to explode as people become aware of this new CC licence. Look for this option to go live tomorrow at noon.
