Improbulus - Creative Commons Song [Update]

Note: This is actually an entry for my music podcast, but I'm cross-posting this to my blog as well, as I think it deserves a broader exposure!

Now, here is a really special song I'd like you to listen to. This is a great song (aria!) by Improbulus which is about the Creative Commons movement. The song itself is Creative Commons licensed, of course, as well as the lyrics (the "libretto" is you want).

Quoting from the original site, the song is an

Operatic ode to Creative Commons, to the tune of Puccini's O Mio Babbino Caro!

The lyrics:

This is Creative Commons:
Something that you've created
Somebody else can copy
Spreading the word about you
You see, they're free to copy
But they must give you credit
And others then can copy
Giving you credit anew
And if they make some money so must you - you profit too!
Isn't that fair, and how?
So get Creative now...

It's a wonderful promotional song for Creative Commons, and it sure has the potential to become sort of the hymn of the Creative Commons movement/culture, if you ask me.

Update 2005-12-06: The song was taken down for now, as the legal situation of the background music is unclear.

The Math-amphetamines - With a Smile

Another The Math-amphetamines song, but this one is a bit more melancholic and sounds more like a traditional folk song.
