> What about dual licensing? Offer the choice of BY-SA (...) or BY-NC

Be aware that so called "Non commercial use only" are the most problematic
licenses in the real world. They tend to be ignored by companies which
claim that their buisiness modell is "not make money with this particular
data but...".

Any court decisions I heart was in favour of the companies. To my eyes,
this degrades any CC-NC license to worse than BSD-like licenses.

So my statement is: no funny dual licensing. Only CC-By-Sa. Point.

Ciao, Imi.
