About Root Record
I started Root Records so I could have a label to release my work under. I had always wanted to make it available for free, but I’d also always wanted to make enough money at it so I wouldn’t have to work anywhere else. The open source movement in the software community has proven, among other things, that it’s possible to give the digital version of your product away for free and still make enough money from the sale of the physical medium that contains your product to stay in business. So I decided to try and adapt it to music. Here’s hoping it works!
Q. I make music and want to release it under the OSML. Can I do that?
A. Yes!!! Just follow the directions in the license. You don’t need to pay any fee or ask permission or anything. Just do it! If you do, let me know and I’ll add a link to your music from this site.
