creative commons music in demos

category: music [glöplog]
 
probably this has been asked before: is it allowed to use a creative commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 licensed audio track in a scene demo?
Is just including it unmodified in a demo already violating the "no derivatives" clause?

As usual I am running out of time preparing a demo for evoke and i'm not sure if i'm gonna finish it so I am hesitant to ask a scene musician for a track (especially on short notice).
But if anyone has an oomphy mp3 track that fits to a glitch-type demo with shiny glowy things please let me know :)

No. You can't. You should ask the author. A demo that include a music is a derivative work of the original work (the music).

ok, thanks. but what about the other license variants that don't include the NoDerivs part?

As long as the track license allows derivatives and demo will carry the same license you should be able to - but asking never hurts, just as a matter of principle.

what does oomphy and glitch-type mean?
i might have some tracks on enough records catalogue that you can use if you can describe it a bit better :)
or mail me if you want to talk privately psenough at gmail

And to back that up, because it's quite a general statement:

spike, thanks for caring about it. Many people don't, especially about the "no derivate" part. The "nc" part too, as soon as some youtube video containing the material has ads enabled...
