Pump Audio and Creative Commons have teamed formed a promotional pact.

Creative Commons, a nonprofit organization espousing a flexible copyright scheme for creative works, is recommending Pump Audio's commercial licensing service to the independent artists it works with.

Meanwhile Pump Audio is offering artists a variety of Creative Commons copyright licenses to its current roster of artists who want to allow non-commercial uses of their music.

Through the agreement, participating artists can post their work online with one of two "badges" - one taking interested parties to the Pump Audio site if they want to license the song for a commercial use, and another to Creative Commons is the license is for a non-commercial use.
