I asked about GeoScience data before at
Is that one you have the "geoMAP 250K DVD-ROM" or "NATMAP Digital Maps
250K 2008 (formerly NATMAP Raster)."? If it is then according to
they are CC-BY 3.0. I would very much like a copy, let me know if you
are happy to redistribute it, I can help out if you need.
The problem with other datasets eg. ones listed in
are that although the bottom says CC-BY, it also says "otherwise
noted", and directly above there is an "otherwise noted" which points
which is not CC-BY compatible.
