Brasil's Minister of Culture, Gilberto Gil, has been involved in developing a new standard Creative Commons "some-rights-reserved" license to encourage the sampling of original works by others:
The Sampling Licenses
Inspired by world-famous musician and composer Gilberto Gil and developed with the help of the veteran found-art group Negativland, Creative Commons will launch our new Sampling Licenses on December 16, 2003.
The new licenses, which will encourage the creative transformation of existing works, will kick-off in Brazil тАФ home of Gil, who now serves as the nation's Minister of Culture, and the FGV Law School, which coordinates Creative Commons' activities in Brazil. Gil and FGV Law School will collaborate on a release of the first Sampling-licensed creative works, which will then serve as the model for the adoption of the Sampling licenses around the world.
