nft new narrative cc0 cc

Zeneca,CC0 What is it ? If you've been paying attention for the past few months, you'll know ,“CC0 Season is coming ”.

In fact, many people don't know CC0 What is it? , I don't know what it means , Why it may be important , Or why it has been talked about more and more recently .

following , Let's analyze it .


CC0 What is it?

CC0 representative “ Knowledge sharing ”. In layman's terms , It basically means works of art / The creator of the content does not retain any intellectual property rights (IP). This happens by default after a certain period of time , But if the creator decides to give up his intellectual property right immediately , And that's what happens . You may have heard that some things exist in “ Public domain ” Of , It means that anyone can freely use the intellectual property to create content . and CC0 Just another way of saying .

for example , All Shakespeare's original works are CC0/ In the public sphere . Shylock - So is Holmes , Or Vincent - Van Gogh's paintings . This means that I can download the following pictures on this website , Then print it out , Mount it , Sell out , These are within my rights . If I don't want to , I don't even need to identify the original author . This freedom to commercialize content is allowed by law , Because the work belongs to CC0.

 Vincent - Van Gogh 《 Wheat fields with cypress trees 》 Vincent - Van Gogh 《 Wheat fields with cypress trees 》

Some are very inconsistent with cc0 The example is :《 Frozen 》 Medium Elsa、Eminem Of 《Lose Yourself》 This song , Or mine BAYC. There are a lot of different types of intellectual property licenses , An in-depth study of all these licenses is beyond the scope of this article ( Besides , I'm far from an expert in this field ), But they all have additional limitations and constraints , About what is allowed , Which are CC0. for example , You may be allowed to use this content for non-commercial purposes . When you do that , You may owe it to the original author , Or maybe not . You may be able to commercialize content , But it can only reach a certain amount every year , Or as long as you don't make money by creating content that describes illegal materials . As far as the content of intellectual property license is concerned , The sky is the limit .


But this is related to NFT What does it matter ?

For most people , When we buy NFT when , Intellectual property is not what we think . We think we're having fun , Buy one jpeg, Join a community , wait . Maybe we think we've got full ownership of what we buy , Include IP Rights and ownership . But actually , This is a more complex and subtle situation , And every project is different . A few weeks ago ,Yuga Labs(BAYC The entity behind ) from Larva Labs Acquired CryptoPunks and Meebits,IP It has become more and more discussion points in this field , And reached a new height .

The first thing they do after the acquisition is to announce that they intend to grant all CryptoPunks and Meebit The holder has full commercial rights . up to now , Any possession Punk or Meebit NFT All people have limited business rights . The extent to which you can create derivatives is limited , And you can learn from this every year IP There is also a limit on the amount earned in (10 Thousands of dollars / year ). It may seem a lot , But if you try to use your Punk Create a brand , Or authorize it to a film studio , Then create a popular animation program , This will have obvious limitations .

Besides , Its principles seem to be consistent with NFT The first is the opposite . Isn't this about real ownership ? If you are still subject to a centralized entity , How much can you really have NFT?

That's the problem .

When Larva Labs hold IP sell to Yuga Labs when , To give Punk/Meebit NFT The rights of owners have changed . In this case , Rights have increased , This seems to be a good thing for the holder . However , We must consider precedents and future possibilities , It's these ideas ( Correctly , In my submission ) It scares some people . If Yuga One day, I was acquired by Disney ? then , If Disney says “ well , We don't want to give everyone full business rights , We want to give Limited Business Rights ”?

The community will ( Probably ) Cause commotion and anger , But if by then ,Yuga There are millions in the ecosystem NFT, And the only real concern is 5 m OG, What would happen ? If we get some good salary from it , Maybe even most OG Don't care . All of a sudden , We are back to web2 In the world of .

First , They came to the socialists , And I didn't say it -- Because I'm not a socialist .

Then they came to the union members , I didn't say it either -- Because I'm not a union member .

Then they came to the Jews , I didn't say it either -- Because I'm not a Jew .

Then they came to me -- No one speaks for me anymore .

——Martin Niemöller

The above paragraph is a bit exaggerated , But I really think the whole discussion is very important , Everyone should at least receive a better education , To understand what's going on .

I really don't think Yuga Will sell to Disney , Or sell it to anyone who wants to limit the rights of the holder . I really believe what they are trying to build is almost an online version of Disney . A global brand . Created by the people , Serve the people . They have a vision , And so far has been in S At the level of ( almost ) everything . They did a good job for us . However , We are still subject to them ; And now , They are at least somewhat constrained by their investors .

The road to hell is paved with kindness .

Another exaggeration , But it's worth thinking about .

About giving NFT What does the owner's full business rights actually mean , There are still a lot of questions to consider . What happens if someone sells their tokens in the secondary market , Whether the right is transferred ? If someone uses their rights to create a derivative , Then sell the original NFT, What then ? In short : It will become chaotic . On this point , I suggest reading CryptoConsigliere This excellent article , He is Wassies Behind this innovative approach taken by the project .


Bring the question back to CC0

We see more and more creators decide to put their... From the beginning NFT The intellectual property behind the project is released to the public domain . You may ask why , And whether this is a good thing for the founders and token owners . And the answer , Like all the good answers in life , yes “ As the case may be ”.

Make something CC0 There are advantages and disadvantages . in my opinion , The biggest advantage is , If I had one CC0 Of NFT, I have everything . This is not to say that I own intellectual property , contrary , No one has this IP. Is not my , Not the founder of the project , Not an artist . It cannot be bought or sold by me or anyone else . All that's left is the original token / assets .

But what's the value ? Isn't intellectual property just value ? Um. , Yes , Neither . Beyond all doubt ,IP It's of great value . Disney makes a lot of money by selling toys and games based on its characters . If it is CC0, They can still do this , But they can't stop others from using these characters to sell toys , And that could hurt their bottom line . For Disney , Let its content become cc0 It doesn't make sense , Because many people are willing to pay them to get their IP Authorization of .

stay web3/NFT field , We are in the early stage of brand building .CC0 One of the benefits of , It gives anyone who wants to use this content to build a brand creative and business freedom . This in itself is a double-edged sword -- It's cool to be used by some creators 、 And valuable things ; Of course , It can also be used by bad people , Destroy the brand image .( because ) This is basically a free .

But it's also Web3 The original intention of , isn't it? ? A network that everyone can use freely ? A decentralization 、 To trust the Internet ? We really shouldn't let these huge centralized entities have so much power , To our IP Have so much ownership . They may eventually buy and sell us IP, It's like web2 Giants buy and sell our data .

CC0 “ solve ” That's the question . There is no more IP For them to buy and sell . Only our tokens , And we have real ownership of these tokens .

As for value -- I will quote Blitmap This excellent article ( I highly recommend reading ), At that time, they decided to put their original collection in the public domain and adopt CC0:

We also considered a list of fictional works that have entered the public domain :

1. King Arthur

2. Shakespeare

3. Dracula

4. Wizard of Oz

5. Jane Eyre

6. Little woman

7. Beluga

8. Peter · Pan

An interesting thing about these examples is , Many of the derivative works they are responsible for are not in the public domain . let me put it another way , Just because King Arthur's foundation and universe are the public sphere , Doesn't mean like 《 Green Knight 》 or 《 Sword in stone 》 Such adaptations also belong to the public domain . however , These adapted works still contribute to the overall significance of the original work . Imagine a world like this , The myth of King Arthur began on the blockchain , Its components are represented as tokens . Of course , It is valuable to prove that you are the creator or owner of the divine sword .


Yes CC0 The refutation of

I'm not against NFT The project retains intellectual property rights , And grant all business rights to the holder . I think there are very reasonable reasons for this . It inspires the team and NFT The owner builds the brand , Because they increase the value of their intellectual property , Not just the foundation / Original token . It allows token holders to transfer their NFT Some licenses are granted to those who wish to use them IP A third party to create things , And share the profits . A good example of this is Jenkins the Valet What is being done ( See me here YouTube Talk to him on , Learn more about this ).

It also helps the team and NFT Owners protect their brands and intellectual property . This should not be underestimated . If someone launches a collection tomorrow , And some of the great works of art are CC0 Of , Then it may not get a lot of attention , And few people will buy . At this time , The destroyer may appear ,“ steal ” Art , Copied the idea , And publish it under a new name , Hype in the market , Profit from all original works . The original author will not ( law ) The right of recourse . Maybe they can appeal to the court of public opinion , But it could be a tough battle . Retaining intellectual property rights will ( In the law ) Protect them .

Without the guidance of the central team , Building a brand is also difficult . It's not impossible , But it's hard .( need ) A creative director to plan franchises , A team to create and implement a roadmap . A vision to work for . But please pay attention to , This is related to a project cc0 Not mutually exclusive . Many projects have released their content to the public domain , But they continue to move towards the unique future they envision for the project . however , If a team knows they have ownership of what they are building , And will not be tampered with by malicious actors at any time , It may be easier to motivate them .


Composability 、 Interoperability and CC0 The beauty of the

We've all seen epic “Otherside” video , Towards the end , You can see a different group of NFT The character is sitting in a car , As shown in the figure below :

This depicts one by our favorite NFT The universe of project characters , Where they can coexist and develop . Here's the irony , Use non CC0 The characters in the series are much more difficult to build a universe ( It's much more expensive ), because , You either have tokens , Or get it from the owner IP to grant authorization . contrary , Anyone can use whatever they want CrypToadz.

I don't know what you think , But I think when CrypToadz and Noun When the series is included in this video , It adds value ; And I think the reason they are added is largely because they are cc0. in fact , I bet. , Many people don't know when reading this article Noun or CrypToadz What is it? . Have you ever heard of “ Cool cat ”、“ Mutant ape ”、“ Encrypted punk ”、“Meebits” and “World of Women”. And now there's one Noun Sit next to them ?Noun What is it? ? And this strange pixelated toad smoking ? Why should these random pixelated things be put together with all other super blue chip projects ?

Because they belong to CC0.

Again , The value is reflected here .

Other projects prefer to use from CC0 The role or asset of the project , Not from non CC0 project , Because they involve less friction .

This is a picture from HyperLoot Concept map of , This project is based on Loot Above the project , And put all kinds of CC0 The roles in the project are integrated into their world .

Although people are talking about builders in this field , But the real construction is carried out quietly behind the scenes , And it is in CC0 In the project . People in these communities basically don't hype on twitter , indulge in verbiage , They're coding , Enjoy their small discord The server , use NFT Do something cool .

The last thing I haven't mentioned is , How many? CC0 Exist completely on the project chain . This is once again beyond the scope of this long article , That is, to delve into what all this means , But briefly : That's a good thing .


some CC0 project

Many great projects are CC0 Of , And more projects appear every week . I don't have a detailed list , But here are a few things I found 、 Projects of interest for various reasons . In no particular order .

Blitmaps / Blitnauts

I've been a fan of this project almost since the first day . I am here 2021 year 6 month 18 I wrote an article about them , And then in 8 month 11 I wrote it again on the th . in my opinion , This is the biggest... I've ever seen “ Hide in full view of the public ” Precious stones . I'm surprised that it seems to have been ignored . The founder of the project is Dom Hoffman, He is one of the smartest and most innovative builders in the whole space . This community is top . Their goals are high :“ A science fiction universe carefully built by a community ”. up to now , They performed perfectly in all respects , And I have little doubt that they will continue to fire in all aspects .


Meme The epitome of the project .Mfers from Sartoshi establish , This man has created art and... In this field for a long time meme 了 . They created 1 m mfers, After publishing, let the community do what it wants to do . The project doesn't even have one Discord, Until some holders set up a “ unofficial ” Version of . Final ,Sartoshi Published this wonderful post : What is? mfers.

I recently tweeted that :“ You can make a road map , Explain where you're going , But you can also plant seeds , Look where they grow .”-- The seeds are around now , We'll see where they grow .

mfer The community is booming . Dozens of derivative projects have been created . They're taking over Twitter A small corner of the . And more and more big V We are adopting mfers As their PFP( Such as DCinvestor and DavidHoffman). They have their own mfer, And no one has IP.


Another similar collection meme, This time by Gremplin To create the . These were released last year in some kind of crazy bull market cycle , They were pushed to 17 eth Or some crazy location ( Its coinage price is 0.069 eth). They are used by many in this field “OG” Adopted by , And people are interested in cc0 And the possibility of derivatives are exciting . Of course , One from... In a few weeks 0.069 To 17 eth Your project is likely to collapse , And it did collapse . For months , It has been 2-4 eth Hover between , But with the recent narrative turning cc0, We see more traction . Many reasons Larva sell to Yuga And feel “ Be despised ” Of Punks Seems to have turned to CrypToadz or Mfers.


The other is by Dom Hoffman Projects created , The combination and derivation are brought into full play .Loot Literally, it's just a list of words . White text on a black background , And you may be RPG Items found in . It was cast for free , No secondary market royalties , And it's hidden . It also reached... In a few weeks 20 eth Floor price . last year 8 month ,Loot It's a completely crazy market .

Its beauty lies in its simplicity . Anyone can do anything with it , And there are already many things based on it , There are also many things inspired by it . Mentioned earlier in this article HyperLoot Project is an example , And the whole TreasureDAO/$Magic Ecosystems are made up of Loot Enlightening .


One of the most interesting projects available . Every day 1 individual Noun NFT Be auctioned to the highest bidder , All the money raised from these auctions goes into one by all Noun The community Treasury managed by the holder . They have now developed to the th 255 God , There are... In the vault 21,791 individual ETH(73,754,081 dollar ). One of the founders of the project punk4156 yes CC0 Faithful believers , Some very loud public statements were made a few months ago , Mainly against Larva Labs Deal with it IP The way , And eventually led to the sale of all Punks.


This is a wonderful and interesting project . The team has a clear vision of the project direction they want , But there are also many community led initiatives and derivatives , Expand the universe in a positive and meaningful way . This is a project built by the builder , And discovered by those who appreciate it ( And excellent pixel art ).

Timeless Characters by Treeverse

Treeverse Is an open world fantasy MMORPG, have MOBA Style combat system .

Timeless Characters By VIII Created animation NFT, Can be in Treeverse In the world as “ The skin ” Use . This is very interesting. , Because they are designed to be used in games , therefore , Presumably , You can transplant these characters to other games , Take your character from one world to another . Whole Treeverse The project is awesome and fascinating , Its founder is one of my favorite voices in this field ,Loopify.

Crypts & Caverns

Crypts and Caverns Is a generative 、 On the chain 、Lootverse Of “ Lego ”. Every NFT Are generated programmatically in the contract , This means that no two maps are the same . The data in each map is carefully optimized , In order to be in Loot Play a good role in the ecosystem , Supporting text 、2D and 3D The world . That means developers 、 Designers and artists can call contracts directly , Integrate their own mechanisms on it 、 Adventure block and .

This wonderful simple project awakened my deep understanding of D&D( Dungeons and dragons ) Fascination . As mentioned in the above description , It has been designed from the beginning to be used by others who may want to be in one or all Crypts and Caverns Easily adopted by people established on . Composability and interoperability to the extreme . There are indeed several projects using C&C As the foundation layer , Build on it , And plan to provide utility to the original owner of the token . And this is the value of the original .


Free Hawaiian photos

If you don't mention this picture , That would be my dereliction of duty . This is a good example , It can be explained that in an original image with almost no rights reserved , Provenance can carry real value . I strongly encourage you to read the full story on this website , But the key point is , stay 2017 year , The photographer Cath Simard Took this amazing picture .

The picture was spread , People and publications around the world began to use this photo , And often without signature , There is no financial compensation . For everyone “ Pursue ” And trying to make a profit is very unrealistic . contrary ,Cath Decided to cast the original into NFT, sell , Then release its rights , So anyone can use the image .6 Months ago , It uses 100 ETH( about 30 Thousands of dollars ) Sold to gmoney.


The original is valuable

Please note that , This picture is not designated as CC0, Instead, it gives everyone an extremely open license . Because this is not CC0, So technically , This license can be changed at any time . Although in my opinion , This is unlikely to happen , But for the sake of detailed information , It is still necessary to mention .
