Interesting project:

The Freesound Project aims to create a huge collaborative database of
audio snippets, samples, recordings, bleeps, ... released under the
Creative Commons Sampling Plus License. The Freesound Project provides
new and interesting ways of accessing these samples, allowing users to

    * browse the sounds in new ways using keywords, a "sounds-like"
type of browsing and more
    * up and download sounds to and from the database, under the same
creative commons license
    * interact with fellow sound-artists!

We also aim to create an open database of sounds that can also be used
for scientific research. Many audio research institutions have trouble
finding correctly licensed audio to test their algorithms. Many have
voiced this problem, but so far there hasn't been a solution.
