New (To Me) Website

The ABC has released a new arts website - Pool.

"Pool is a social media project developed by ABC Radio National. It's a place to share your creative work with the Pool community and ABC producers - upload music, photos, videos, documentaries, interviews, animations and more. It's a collaborative space where audiences become makers."

The biggest advantage of Pool (to me) is that you can choose your licensing options - from free for others to share and change right through to "all rights reserved" - and artists can choose to vary this by each movie, sound, picture or whatever they upload. That means those downloading the items know exactly what they are permitted to do with the items.

From memory it has only been up for about a week so it is worth keeping an eye on as the range grows and develops.
