How do I Attribute?

1. GIVE CREDIT. Be sure to give credit in the video or app or game itself. Attribution is currency! For example, if you use cafe connection by morgantj, Attribute in the actual video or game or app: 

Music "cafe connection" by morgantj featuring Morusque
Available at ccMixter.org http://ccmixter.org/files/morgantj/18947
Under CC BY license http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

2. LINK BACK. Attribution requires you link back and helps the artist get credit. For example, in the YouTube description field or on the webpage where you embed your video or have folks download your app, the Attribution link should like this:

Music "cafe connection" by morgantj featuring Morusque
Available at ccMixter.org http://ccmixter.org/files/morgantj/18947
Under CC BY license http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

3. NAME THE LICENSE. Include the type of the CC license designed for the track, and link to it. The examples above do that on the last line. This explains to others how CC licenses work. 

It is simple to utilize the free music library at ccMixter.org, so start digging! Just remember, Attribution -- giving credit -- is what makes it possible for these artists to give their music away. Yep, Attribution is the new currency. 

 

Thanks to ccMixter for these clear instructions!
