The original file will be very useful

Mapenzi - do you need the original file, or can you just stream the video?

Nice Video. I wish to use it for my last session tomorrow. Please send it to my inbox.

Maybe next time, then?

Thanks for clarifying your original question and for sharing resources for CC licensed music. The music for this video is not licensed under Creative Commons, but a commercial license that does not allow commercial use, nor any derivatives. At the same time, the music license does not require an attribution. Sadly, Wikimedia Commons doesn't seem to be a fit for showing this as an example of media produced for Open Access Week.

If the original music is under a Creative Commons license with -NC and -ND provisions, than it also has a BY provision, so you should have attributed it.

I had neither commercial nor derivative uses in mind, but wanted to upload the video to Wikimedia Commons as an example of the things that are produced for Open Access Week, so that it could be put into https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_Access_Week or similar articles.

Wikimedia Commons does not accept materials with -NC and -ND restrictions.

There are multiple platforms that have lots of openly licensed music, e.g. https://soundcloud.com/search/sounds?q=house&filter.license=to_... or https://musopen.org/ .

Thanks for your interest in this video and the desire to distribute it
further. Both -NC, and -ND provisions of the Creative Commons license are
dictated by the music license we acquired for the project. Which
commercial or derivative uses did you have in mind?

Hi Susan,

is there any particular reason why the video is licensed with -NC and -ND restrictions?

Any chance these might be dropped?

It's a pity that this nice video is not reusable.
