Now it is hard to find any outcomes of this small national pilot in Germany. Does anyone at lessig or from the CC fans knows what happened?

Many thanks,

Thus, it would not be legitimate to sell this content anyways.

A problem they have and describe in the video is that they can only use music and graphic material that is also not under copyright, otherwise they would infringe.

A great idea, hope they release more and more content this way!
