Moonbirds just released all of its NFTs into the public domain

In a major change for the popular NFT project, Kevin Rose, founder of Moonbirds, announced on Twitter that Moonbirds and Oddities will move to a CC0 license.

CC0, otherwise known as Creative Commons, simply means “no rights reserved” on intellectual property. It is a form of copyright that allows creators to relinquish any legal interest in their work and place it, where possible, in the public domain. This means anyone can now freely use Moonbirds NFT art without any copyright restrictions.

“In this new future,” Rose said in the tweet, “true ownership is dictated by what’s recorded on channel, as it should be, not government or corporate hosted recording.”

This historic announcement comes just days after renowned crypto artist XCOPY announced that he would retroactively apply CC0 for all their existing art. Of course, except for their collaborative pieces. Moonbirds and XCOPY are not alone in this regard either. Other NFT creators like Deca have recently performed successful CC0 project launcheswith artists like Grant Yun tries to follow suit soon in the CC0 shift.

Goblintown, one of the biggest projects to hit the NFT scene in recent months, also launched as CC0. Thanks to this, OpenSea’s charts were dominated for a while by irreverent goblin-themed collections. Many figures in space like Zeneca_33 refer to this growing movement as “the CC0 summer” – the emergence of a new CC0-centric meta in the NFT landscape.

Rose also announced the upcoming formation of the Moonbirds DAO, which will primarily oversee the general licensing of the Moonbirds and Oddities brands and prevent scams, hate speech and community violence. Community members can expect to see changes to the project’s terms of service and website in the coming days. The Moonbirds team will also be hosting a Q&A session on August 5 in the Parliament Moonbirds Twitter spaces.
