Internet Archive

1You can quickly and easily publish your audio files to the Internet Archive by visiting http://www.archive.org/​create/​, which includes a license selection step.

2For large files (>500MB), you may wish to use our CC Publisher application. CC Publisher is a tool that does two things: it will help you tag your audio files with information about your license and it allows you to upload Creative Commons-licensed audio and video works to the Internet Archive for free hosting.

3CC Publisher is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux operating systems. Download links and installation instructions can be found on the CC Publisher page.

Using CC Publisher

4Step one: Dragging your songs into CC Publisher

5Start the CC Publisher application and hit Next on the introductory screen. The process starts by adding your files to be tagged/uploaded. You can use the browse function to find the files, or simply drag and drop as many files that you would like to license (all with the same license) and upload (all into the same collection at Internet Archive).

6Step two: Adding information about your works

7The next screen will ask for information about your recording or video, which will help others find it at the archive and build up the metadata in your audio files

8Step three: Choose your license

9CC Publisher lets you choose one of several license types and the options for each.

10Step four: Logging into the Internet Archive

11To upload your works to the Internet Archive, you'll need an account there to associate your files with. If you don't have an account there, there is a handy button within CC Publisher that will launch a web browser and allow you to join it.

12Step five: Start your upload to the Archive

13The final step is to upload your works to the Internet Archive. Depending on your connection and the size of files you are uploading, this step can take anywhere from a few seconds to several hours.

14Step six: All done!

15When your upload is complete, the Publisher application will furnish you with a URL that should be live within 24 hours at the Archive.

Soundclick

16Step one: Sign up at SoundClick

17SoundClick is a music website that features both signed and unsigned bands, offering unlimited storage for your band's music.

Morpheus

26Morpheus is a popular windows P2P file-sharing application with support for locating and displaying Creative Commons licenses on audio files. The following steps describe the process to distributing your audio on the Morpheus network.

27Step one: Use CC Publisher to add metadata to your music

28The first step to getting your music recognized by Morpheus is to embed your license into your songs. Follow our tutorial on using CC Publisher. When you're done either publishing your song to the Internet Archive or your own website, your audio file will have the proper embedded metadata.

29Step two: Put your song into Morpheus' Downloads directory

30Once you have used CC Publisher, your audio file should have extra metadata embedded. Simply copy the file to your Downloads directory within Morpheus to begin sharing it. Others using the Morpheus client should be able to see your song and search for it.

31Finding Creative Commons licensed audio on Morpheus

32Search for licensed music at Morpheus

33You can search for licensed songs at Morpheus by putting "cc:sampling" into the search field (search for other licenses via "cc:sharing" is coming soon).

34Licenses in Search Results

35You should see Creative Commons license information in your search results.

Adding a license to LiveJournal

102(Follow the first two steps above to choose a license and copy the code)

103While logged in, go to the LiveJournal homepage and look at the header.

  • If it's a personal blog, choose "Journal" then "Journal style".
  • If it's a community, choose "Communities" then "Manage," and for the community you want to mark, click "[Journal Style]" on the right.

104On the right, under "(blog name)'s current theme", click "Customize your theme".

105Click Sidebar and paste the HTML code into the relevant box. (Depending on the theme, you may need to click "sidebar" there may be one or many boxes, and you may need to click "Free Text Sidebox" to make them visible.)

106Save and see how it looks.

107Depending on the options you've chosen, this may look a bit bulky or messy - you may want to add <small> </small> tags to the text under the box.

108Depending on the theme you are using, you may be able to add the mark elsewhere, e.g. in a footer (?).

109Another option is to edit the CSS directly, if you know how to do this. Instead of clicking "Sidebar", click "Custom CSS" and go from there. LiveJournal's way of selectively presenting the CSS {?) differs from other blog platforms, so this can be confusing if you're not used to it. Make a copy of the previous version of the CSS into a text file, and note the settings, in case something goes wrong and you need to change it back.
