Last but not least, one worthwhile option you should consider is licensing your work through Creative Commons. Creative Commons is a tool that lets you share your creativity and innovation in such a way that the whole world can see and/or hear your work, you retain copyright ownership, and you can modify the copyright items in such a way that best suits your needs.
