Creative Commons, its affiliates, and the community will be hosting parties around the world from December 7 to 16 to celebrate Creative Commons’ 10th year anniversary this year. CC Philippines will join the celebration on 7 December 2012 at the Arellano University School of Law.
To mark this event, the above clip was created by PiPaul, a photographer and graphic designer in the Philippines, as a token of his appreciation to the community as he acquired knowledge of the availability of CC licensed audio tracks in CCMixter.
Sourcing appropriate audio tracks, without violating copyright laws or the rights of others, was one of PiPaul’s predicaments before he was introduced to the full potential of legal sharing. He included a portion of J. Lang’s “Drops of H20 (The Filtered Water Treatment)” as background music to the above clip. See http://ccmixter.org/files/djlang59/37792 for more details about J. Lang’s music. Note that J. Lang’s version was a legal derivative of Airtone’s original work. See http://ccmixter.org/files/airtone/33469 for more details of Airtone’s music.

For a short period between 2008 and 2010, the Creative Commons Newsletter was available in PDF format.
This post merely illustrates how the contribution of others, by sharing their works under Creative Commons licenses, allowed the creation of some of the covers of said newsletter.
Can one combine differently licensed images under CC? Except for works licensed under BY-ND and the BY-NC-ND, other works can be combined. See Creative Commons FAQ.
What does one need to observe when combining CC licensed images?
Note that BY-SA and BY-NC-SA cannot be combined to create a BY-NC-SA work, since the NC requirement under BY-NC-SA would violate the BY-SA license condition that the derivative work, derived from a BY-SA work, should be shared under the same license, i.e. under BY-SA.
With that, I hope you find CC licensed works, such as in Flickr, useful to pursue your own creativity. Likewise, I hope that you share your works too, in addition to those already provided by others, so that others can harness their own creativity.
While people discuss the possibility of being incarcerated by government authorities in the Philippines, someone in Syria already is.
