Sci-Fi Fans went crazy when "Done The Impossible - The Fans' Tale of Firefly & Serenity" came out on DVD. Now the creators released a Creative Comons-licensed version via Legaltorrents.com. For free, and for the right reasons. From the release notes:

"We philosophically agree with the concepts of Creative Commons. In our opinion, the modern state of copyright is counter productive to creativity and free culture. It puts unnatural restraints on "fair use", hinders the creative process and has fundamentally destroyed an entire industry before it was even born. Just think of the amazing products, enhancements, embellishments and re-mixes to creative works that could be built with today's technology and talents. But because modern copyrights are so restrictive, nobody dares do anything that *might* infringe on somebody's oh so holy copyright. Thus, we have chosen to not go down that road with our documentary. Enjoy it, share it, re-mix it all you like, just be sure to follow the license below."


I must confess that didn't have a chance to look at it yet - but I've been told that it is "possibly the best Creative Commons-licensed content yet". Download and judge for yourself:
