Open source music

This is great.  Yo Yo Ma is running a contest (deadline New Year’s Eve) in which he invites everyone to collaborate with him on a musical composition.  I first heard about it on All Things Considered.  Ma has recorded a track of Dona Nobis Pacem.  You can download the track, add your own counter melody or variations to it and upload the resulting collaborative composition.  If your entry is selected, you win the opportunity to record one-on-one with Yo Yo Ma.  The top ten entries as judged by the community receive honorable mentions and an autographed copy of Ma’s Songs of Joy and Peace. The contest is hosted on, a social networking site for musicians.  Totally cool!  Question:  How are Indaba creations licensed?
