@switchingsocial So how confident can I be that the music I encounter on this instance is creative commons licensed?
Is it usually uploaded by the artist or a third party?
Is there someone checking licenses? I don't want to be a copyright narc, but I also don't want to have a useful legal service get shut down because it's being abused, you know?
And when I go to browse right now, one of the first tracks is a Joni Mitchel track that is definitely still under copyright.
https://open.audio has open signup, but uploading content require manual approval by instance admins (@eliotberriot, a.k.a. me at the moment). Usually, people contact me by email and explain they want to upload their work on the instance, I quickly check if they are serious, and grant them some upload space.
