Submission + - CBC Bans Creative Commons Music On Radio

Chaonici writes: The popular Canadian radio show Spark reports that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Canada's publicly owned and funded national radio broadcaster, has banned podcasts that use Creative Commons-licensed music. 'The decision is apparently the result of restrictions in collective agreements the CBC has with some talent agencies,' writes Canadian copyright scholar Michael Geist. 'In other words, groups are actively working to block the use of Creative Commons licenced alternatives in their contractual language.'
