Creative Commons offers authors, artists, scientists and all other creative creators the freedom to handle their copyrights in a flexible way. Buma/Stemra offers her members the opportunity to, besides commercial exploitation through Buma/Stemra, license non-commercial exploitation of their musical works through Creative Commons themselves, strictly for promotional purposes. Authors that are already a member of Buma/Stemra can therefore license non-commercial use according to the Creative Commons conditions within the membership context of – and the commercial exploitation by – Buma/Stemra.
A writer or composer who, until now, has only released his work under non-commercial Creative Commons conditions, can also choose to become a member of Buma/Stemra in order to transfer the fee collection, resulting from the commercial use of his works, to Buma/Stemra. In all cases shall commercial use continue to go through Buma/Stemra.
