Screaming Creative Commons

scream

As I just wrote about Lawrence Lessig in my last post, it makes it all the more interesting to read that Lessig’s labor is bearing fruit. Boingboing is reporting that the movie Children of Men, a major motion picture, has used a sound (specifically, the sound of someone screaming) that was taken from the Free Sound Project, which is a “collaborative database of Creative Commons licensed sounds.

Boingboing speculates that this may be the first appearance of a CC license in a major motion picture. Wanna bet that it won’t be the last?
