Under which Creative Commons license? there are six types. All require attribution. Some allow modification, others don't. Some allow commercial use, others don't. See an attorney for further details.
I am not your lawyer and you are not my client. Free advice here is without recourse and any reliance thereupon is at your sole risk. This is done without compensation as a free public service. I am licensed in IL, MO, TX and I am a Reg. Pat. Atty. so advice in any other jurisdiction is strictly general advice and should be confirmed with an attorney licensed in that jurisdiction.Ask a similar question
Avvo doesn't pay us for these responses, and I'm not your lawyer just because I answer this question or respond to any follow-up comments. If you want to hire me, please contact me. Otherwise, please don't expect a further response. We need an actual written agreement to form an attorney-client relationship. I'm only licensed in CA and you shouldn't rely on this answer, since each state has different laws, each situation is fact specific, and it's impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue.Ask a similar question
This depends on the specific terms of the specific creative commons license--there are many of them, all of which have different terms and limitations. If the creative commons restricts commercial use, then a film festival is per se a commercial use. People enter film festivals with the hope that their films will receive awards and then find a wider audience---this is a commercial objective. I am very skeptical of using creative common licenses for purposes of using songs in films---this almost never works.Ask a similar question
