Libre Musique, how, why ?
The Dogmazic.net musical archive provides more than 55000 music tracks, all of them downloadable freely "totally quietly and totally legally".
The musicians who publish on Dogmazic.net all choosed to provide their musique under a free or open license
According to the license chosen, many rights can be grandted as-is to listeners.
The most permissive license, the CC-BY, allows any kind of use as long as the author and the license are indicated, including commerical uses without any counterpart (which can be useful for a monetized video soundtrack).
At the other side of the spectrum, the most restrictive open license, the CC-BY-NC-ND, allows only unmodified copy and broadcast outside any kind of commercial use.
Some of the open and free licenses can allow remixing, commercially or not. Some of them may demand that the remix is placed under a free license as well. For more information about the rights granted to the audience by free and open licenses, you can take a look at the licences table in our documentation.
The volunteer organisation
Dogmazic.net exists since 2004 thank to the volunteer of the non-profit Musique Libre which acts as the site editors, whithout commercial aims. Dogmazic is funded only by donations made by musicians and listeners, counterparts for events like conferences and workshops, and by membership fees of the Musique Libre's volunteers. Initially based in Bordeaux, Musique Libre is now located in Lyon. It also maintains a blog providing informations and news about free cultures and commons.
