While reading Boing Boing this morning, I learned that Uncensored Interview, a site that records and posts video interviews with independent musicians, has made over 1000 of their videos available under the extremely permissive CC-BY Creative Commons license. This means that anyone is free to repost, reuse or remix these videos, just so long as they attribute Uncensored Interview as the original creator. Needless to say, this archive will prove invaluable to anyone working on a video project documenting just about any aspect of independent music. To give you a taste of what’s available, I’ve posted a video above of mash-up artist and fair use poster boy Girl Talk talking about–what else?–fair use. And after the break, you’ll find a video of Brooklyn dance-punk duo Matt & Kim discussing how the Internet has allowed them to bypass traditional distribution and promotion channels.
