Pearl Jam releases video under Creative Commons license

In its latest bid to show its progressive side, popular band Pearl Jam has just released its latest music video, "Life Wasted," under a Creative Commons license.

That means, according to Creative Commons creative director Eric Steuer, that anyone will be able to "legally copy, distribute and share the clip" for noncommercial purposes.

Steuer thinks that this is the first music video from a major record label to be so licensed. But either way, it's a great step forward for those who believe that content can be both protected and shared, something the record companies and the movie studios usually don't seem to believe.
