Since a major goal of Locally Toned is to confront a system of commerce (the distribution of music industry ringtones) with one of shared creativity (home grown ringtones), here’s the Creative Commons licensing I’ve selected to employ:
Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike
This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. Others can download and redistribute your work just like the by-nc-nd license, but they can also translate, make remixes, and produce new stories based on your work. All new work based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also be non-commercial in nature.
Here’s the license deed.
Here’s the legal code.
