Could You Be Fully Entertained with Openly Licensed Creative Work?

The vast majority of my business is tied to open source software. The culture I work in expects it. Being able to read the source code, update as needed (without asking permission), and share freely is part of the business of building software.

Yet, in my personal life, the expectation is that entertainment is all rights reserved.

The sheer volume of work licensed under Creative Commons indexed by and Google’s ‘Usage rights‘ search – I’m confident I could be wholly and fully entertained with work I was free to remix, share, and redistribute. All commercial free, FBI warning free, and DRM-free.

How many other inconveniences wouldn’t exist if creative work was expected to be openly licensed?

What if all broadcast media, since it’s distributed across public airwaves, must be CC-BY?
