Get Gone Guidelines
A 6 point model for single issue protest music
These parameters are designed as a way of ensuring integrity within political music whilst encouraging free expression and creativity.

2: No cash input
All music is to be made using existing resources – no money to be outlaid for recording, musicians or equipment specifically for this project.
3: No financial licensing
All music and videos are to be licensed as Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-Sharealike 4.0 International (see here).
4: No cash promotion
The idea lives on the effectiveness of its music and message, no paid-for promotion or publicity is to be undertaken.
5: No fixed prices
All songs/tracks/videos are to be available for free or by donation.
6: No profits
All profits are to be donated to a charity or action group that best covers the project's theme.
