Free Culture Blues

Yesterday we heared a fun song, Tuxedo Blues being played here live (mp3)

(E)(A)Woke up this mornin' turned on the news 
somebody's trying to steal the blues. 

(A)They try to license E-Major and put my songs in danger 
(B)It's my favourite blues chord soon it ain't free no more. 

Went to O'Malley's to fetch me some gin 
sat down at the bar when i saw him walking in 
His name was Tux he gave me a grin 
said try open source fella that's how you win. 

cause culture is free and should always be 
it's creative and common for both you and me 
let's share this song so we can get along 
let's share this song so we can get along 

The song is available under an attribution non commercial share alike licence. It is made available by Registered Commons, a new service that allows creators to register their work, so that at a future date they can proove that it is theirs. So if you are worried that someone may take your liberally licenced work, claim it as their own, and then sue you, this is the service to look at. Even the paranoïd can join in and sing the blues now :-)
