The new Blade Runner TV show will be Creative Commons

Did you see the announcement? A Blade Runner webseries is going to be made, title “Purefold” (sheep/fold…ha!)(the original book was not titled ‘Blade Runner’).

Here’s the big part of the announcement:

In an indication that the filmmakers are interested in exploring a new kind of collective, social creativity, the episodes in the series will be released under a Creative Commons license, marking the first time a major Hollywood director has embraced that alternative licensing scheme. The license means fans of the series can take the episodes and remix or otherwise repurpose them, and even make their versions available commercially under the same license.

That, as well as how it will be more like the book instead of the movie.
