Submission + - Creative Commons Responds to ASCAP Letter (zeropaid.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Drew Wilson at ZeroPaid has a followup to the story that ASCAP told its members that organizations like EFF and Creative Commons are undermining copyright. A spokesperson from Creative Commons said, “It’s very sad that ASCAP is falsely claiming that Creative Commons works to undermine copyright Creative Commons licenses are copyright licenses – plain and simple, without copyright, these tools don’t even work.” He also said, "Many tens of thousands of musicians, including acts like Nine Inch Nails, the Beastie Boys, David Byrne, Radiohead, and Snoop Dogg, have used Creative Commons licenses to share with the public." Many ASCAP members are already expressing their disappointment with the ASCAP letter over at Mind the Gap. Sounds like ASCAP will be in damage control for a while.
