Moby Makes Music Podsafe                                              08th February 2008

Moby is giving away some free music. He’s not pulling a Radiohead, at least not directly.  Instead of releasing an album online, he’s releasing 76 different tracks online, all of them freely available from his website in MP3 format (after passing through an email registration screen).

The purpose of the give-a-way isn’t to propagate his music throughout the iPods of the world, but to allow independent filmmakers and media producers to use the music under a Creative Commons-ish license:

 this portion of moby.com, ‘film music’, is for independent and non-profit filmmakers, film students, and anyone in need of free music for their independent, non-profit film, video, or short.
to use the site you log in(or on?) and are then given a password.

you can then listen to the available music and download whatever you want to use in your film or video or short.

the music is free as long as it’s being used in a non-commercial or non-profit film, video, or short.

if you want to use it in a commercial film or short then you can apply for an easy license, with any money that’s generated being given to the humane society.

It’s an interesting move, and if you don’t run advertisements on your podcast, qualifies as “pod-safe” music.

There isn’t a readily available verification process that for-profit outfits can use to show donations made to the Humane Society, but those who plan to make use of the music under a commercial banner can contact Moby at the site for more details by way of email.
