In this edition of TCIBR we sit down with Kickstarter co-founder Yancey Strickler. Kickstarter is a site that enables people with creative projects to connect with those who are interested in donating funds to make them happen. From software projects like Arin Crumley’s OpenIndie to Mike Ambs’ For Thousand Miles, Kickstarter has an interesting mix of projects in search of patrons. Within a short period of time Kickstarter has generated quite a bit of buzz while also assisting a variety of projects to reach their funding goals.

  • Cory has an excellent post on his blog about a recent comic book deal with IDW comics. IDW is a huge player in the comics world. What's fascinating is that Cory has just signed a comic deal for six of his stories which carry Creative Commons Attribution/ShareAlike/Noncommercial licenses. IDW will be releasing them in a commercial way but still keeping the Creative Commons licenses which will allow fans to remix them in non-commercial ways.

    Here is the language from the deal

    The exclusive rights granted to Licensee hereunder are subject to a pre-existing Creative Commons license which grants members of the public the irrevocable and nonexclusive right to create their own adaptations of the Licensed Property, including comic books. Such Creative Commons-licensed works may not be sold or distributed for profit. Licensee acknowledges that under the terms of this Creative Commons license, members of the public may create comic book version of the Licensed Property for non-commercial distribution. Licensor agrees not to license the rights which are granted to Licensee hereunder to any competitor of Licensee or to any commercial enterprise intending to create adaptations of the Works for commercial distribution.
