Remix culture: an empirical analysis of creative reuse and the licensing of digital media in online communities

"We explore the nature and impact of creative reuse in the production of digital media by analysing the output of an innovative online music sharing community, ccMixter. The dataset is of great significance because this is one of only a handful of online communities which do not only allow for the sharing of user–generated content, but also track the evolution of content after it has been published online and encourage reuse of the content for the production of new works. All content on ccMixter is legally uploaded, copyrighted, and licensed under Creative Commons. Much has been written about the birth of a new 'remix culture' on the Internet and how collaborative Web 2.0 technology has led to an explosion of user–generated content. But very little is known about the process of developing digital media in an open and collaborative fashion, the incentives of participating authors, and the outcomes of their actions. Based on our earlier studies of Creative Commons licensing and the analysis of this unique online community we hope to shed more light on the structure and dynamics of such activities by providing some of the first visualisations ever of large–scale remixing activity and presenting our preliminary findings."
