Creative Commons Interest after Visit to Exeter and Bristol by Dan Jarvis MP

Shadow Culture Minister Dan Jarvis MP is soon to launch a report on culture and cultural industry in the regions. Yesterday he visited Animated Exeter and Sound Gallery and later the Watershed in Bristol. He was a guest on the Wild Show at Phonic FM, situated in the basement of the Exeter Phoenix, close to Sound Gallery.

The Wild Show is presented by Chris Norton. I am often a guest and sometimes present when Chris is away. We both rely on JD who keeps the technology in order and sometimes takes us back to '80s dance music. Yesterday Chris forgot to cue up a record so invited me to add some questions. So there are two clips on YouTube.

Off air I had a conversation with Exeter Councillor Paul Bull who is interested in Creative Commons. I had asked Dan Jarvis why he did not use Creative Commons on his Flickr account. Later I met Paul Bull in the Phoenix bar and he agreed to record a short clip.

So there could be more content from public figures with a Creative Commons licence. It would make it clear that reuse is welcomed.

The clips above are on a Creative Commons licence for YouTube. The lighting is terrible but the sound is ok. There will soon be a Soundcloud recording as broadcast through the Wild Show page on Facebook. Please link to the Wild Show.

Previously, at #likeminds 2010 Joanne Jacobs spoke about Creative Commons during a discussion in a cinema where the lighting was even worse than the Phonic studio. She agreed to repeat her contribution at the Exeter Conference Centre.
