Creative Commons Offers an Exclusive Unreleased JoCo Compilation On USB Drive

Mega Green FlashdriveThe nerdcore singer songwriter Jonathan Coulton has teamed up with Creative Commons to release a greatest hits compilation JoCo Looks Back on a 1gb custom Creative Commons jump drive to help support it's 2008 campaign. JoCo and CC have also included all of the unmixed audio tracks for every song on the drive. That’s over 700mb of JoCo thing-a-week goodness. Since all of JoCo’s music is released under an Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license, you can remix and reuse his music.

CC will be offering the drives at $50 dollar donation level (and above) until December 31st. Also included are a CreativeCommons.net account, an OpenID identity, and a 2008 campaign sticker.

JoCo wrote a letter on how he, as a musician, uses Creative Commons to support himself and his career. Read it here.
