YouTube creative commons videos sharing

YouTube is home to some of the more creative individuals online -- people who create content, often splicing and dicing numerous videos together to create mesmerizing mashups. Now YouTube wants to help these people find videos online that are intended to be borrowed and re-edited without fear of violating copyrights.
The company has created a section of its free online video editor that would host Creative Commons licensed videos; this means anyone can reuse a video tagged Creative Commons, as long as they give credit to its original creators.
YouTube will also make it simple for people who upload their own videos to tag them as Creative Commons so others can edit that content too. Each minute, 35 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube, most of it user-created.
