[OSM-legal-talk] Creative-Commons 4.0 (first draft)

I guess the number 1 requirement for CC4, from an OSM point of view,
is that it be interoperable with the ODbL.  Firstly so that those who
are building applications using OSM data today would be able to keep
doing what they are doing even if OSM started using CC4 in future, and
secondly so that any such switchover would not have to delete any
non-compliant data (such as imports where permission has been granted
for ODbL but not for CC).

This is something that Open Data Commons would have to take part in
too, since Creative Commons cannot create an ODbL-to-CC migration path
on their own.
