Fabricio, what do you need the right for? You can burn a CD anyway.

tarkowski, I’m not sure what you mean. Can you elaborate?

Mike, what I have in mind is the basic mission, leaving aside the steps to get there. The question I’m wondering about is what specific abilities CC is trying to enable. CC has a huge burden to make noncommercial verbatim distribution globally a real thing, so it’s crucial to know why this investment is worthwhile.

There are a couple major agenda items for CC. One is cultural ecology as a whole — are the good singers allowed to sing? Are the paintings we’re getting better or worse? The other is democracy in cultural activity — can anybody at all sing, or is singing reserved for people who are sponsored by large music companies?

What I’m wondering is why redistribution is a baseline part of either of those goals.
