We are the "Intercontinental Music Lab (IML)"

After a feverish debate that lasted literally days and involved nearly ten posts on a discussion forum we have decided on becoming a collective known as the "Intercontinental Music Lab (IML)" I'm not sure how well this bodes given that I went through several typos before being able to stick that in the post. Oh well.

In other news, we've got the services of the wonderful Naked Scientists who are going to help us promote the end product through an interview on their much loved and listened to podcast. This is really great news for the IML as well as popular science lovers in general. Hooray for them.

Oddly enough for a product which is very much about being fun before anything else, this does mean we have to work out what sort of licence we're going to attach to all of this stuff. Having talked with a couple of online media savvy pals, it looks like this sort of affair will be our best option. It will mean that we can distribute all of our music, safe in the knowledge that if Coca Cola do decide to come calling to use the John Matthews theme, they'll have to negotiate a price.

So here it is, what you've all been dying to read. An introduction to the various Creative Commons licences we could sign up to:

I suggest we go for:
Attribution Non-commercial No Derivatives (by-nc-nd)

Good grief, that's far too much business talk for this evening. Everybody get back to singing into beans cans and the like.
