PRWeb podcastPRWeb, a leading Internet press release service, has announced that, effective today, all podcasts delivered through PRWeb’s podcasting service are released under the Creative Commons Sampling Plus 1.0 license. This license is being made retroactively to all current and archived podcast content.Under the terms of the new license individuals are permitted to sample, mash-up, or otherwise creatively transform this work for commercial or noncommercial purposes, and perform, display, and distribute copies of this whole work for noncommercial purposes (e.g., file-sharing or noncommercial webcasting).

The Sampling Plus 1.0 license opens the door to more flexible use; people making reuse of the work need to attribute the source of the sampled content.“We decided to replace the more restrictive Creative Commons BY-NC-ND 2.5 with the Sampling Plus version in response to requests from the podcasting community,” stated Andrew Schlichting, Web 2.0 Content Manager for PRWeb.

The Sampling Plus license makes it possible for the individuals and producers to use content from PRWeb podcasts within their own podcast productions and consumer generated content. Andrew adds, “The unique format of our podcast interviews lends itself to creative sampling.”

David McInnis, PRWeb’s Founder and CEO, positions this move as a windfall for the podcasting community. “With today’s announcement, we are making new content available to content producers seeking creative content to incorporate into their work.”
