Creative Commons Sponsored Software ccHost Releases Version 4.0

Creative Commons, a nonprofit organization that provides flexible copyright licenses for authors and artists along with the Creative Commons Developer Community released the ccHost 4.0 today. ccHost is an Open Source web-based media sharing software. This release builds upon ccHost's novel support of collaboration, sharing, and storage of multi-media using the different Creative Commons licenses and metadata.

These features most notably show up and are tested in Creative Commons' project, ccMixter (www.ccmixter.org), a popular on-line social network service that supports legal music sharing and remixing. ccHost is the Open Source Software engine powering ccmixter.org and which anyone may download, install, and use to freely build media sharing communities.

This 4.0 release is a 2-3X performance boost over the last major version.
This release also includes playlists/favorites, an embedded mp3 player, and a remix radio channels for audio content. A new feature that builds upon ccHost's usage of standards is the "Publicize" feature whereby anyone can include lists of information about their profile from ccHost so that their info may be used around the web in easy-to-use formats. Also of note with this release is the inclusion of the recently released Creative Commons 3.0 Licenses, which are selectable as an administrator.

The ccHost development community encourages new developers to contribute to the project. The future of ccHost is bright with upcoming development focusing on user and admin requests for features like further generalization of media support, better tools to support social networking features, and further language support.

Chat with other developers on channel #cc on irc.freenode.org, join the project mailing list (https://lists.sourceforge.net/mailman/listinfo/cctools-cchost), and edit the project wiki page to help shape this project's future direction (http://wiki.creativecommons.org/wiki/ccHost).

About ccHost

The goal of this project is to spread media content that is licensed
under Creative Commons throughout the web in much the same way that
weblogs spread CC licensed text. ccHost is web-based infrastructure that
may be used to host and allow for commenting, remixing, and distribution
globally. The more installations of ccHost and its variations, the more content there will be available for enjoyment and artistic re-use in a
sane and legal setting. ccHost is what is used for the infamous Creative
Commons ccMixter project, which supports legal media sharing and remixing.

About Creative Commons

Creative Commons is a nonprofit organization that promotes the creative
re-use of intellectual and artistic works - whether owned or in the public domain. Creative Commons licenses provide a flexible range of protections and freedoms that build upon the "all rights reserved" concept of traditional copyright to offer a voluntary "some rights reserved" approach. Creative Commons is sustained by the generous support of various foundations including the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Omidyar Network Fund, the Hewlett Foundation, and the Rockefeller Foundation, as well as members of the public.
