This license allows others to create remixes (derivative works) based on your original music.
They can use your music to create something new, but they must give you attribution (credit) for the original work, and you'll receive a percentage of any revenue they make from their remix.
This is a great option if you want to encourage others to build on your music and share their own unique creations.
On the other hand, when you make a Remix, you have to say that it's a Remix of a certain song by a certain artist.
You also have to give credits for the original work and pay the artist a percentage of the profits you make when you sell or use the Remix in some way.
The amount you pay is decided by the artist and explained in a document called "Exhibit A" which is part of the OURSONG TERMS OF SERVICE.
A musician might choose to release a track under a Remix-Attribution License to encourage others to create remixes of their work.
This can help to build a fanbase and increase exposure for the artist, as remixes can be shared and distributed widely online.
Collaborating with other artists:
A musician might collaborate with other artists on a track and use a Remix-Attribution License to allow each artist to create their own remix of the original material.
This can create a diverse range of remixes and help to showcase each artist's unique style and sound.
Allow remixes to be available for commercial use:
A musician might choose to license their music under a Remix-Attribution License to allow remixes from the music to be available for commercial use, such as in a film or advertisement.
This can provide a new revenue stream for the artist, while also allowing for creative remixes of their work to be used in new contexts.
A musician might hold a remix contest to allow participants to create and submit remixes of their work. By using Remix-Attribution License, remixed works can be used for commercial purposes.
This can be a fun and interactive way to encourage creativity and incentivize participants to create remixes.
All in all, the Remix-Attribution License can be a useful tool for musicians who want to encourage the creation of remixes of their works while still maintaining some control over how their music is used and distributed.
