Sure, but I thought we had an explicit consensus on discrimination against
fields of endeavour, which is seen in CC-By 3.0 4.a about "effective 
technological measures".

Happily, that's only a lawyerbomb (in that no-one, even within CC, seemed 
to agree what it means for debian - is offering source code enough to 
satisfy it?) and not a current live problem.

Beware some of the "ported" CCs which include the trademark notice by
mistake and produced a licence which failed to follow DFSG - and some were 
incompatible with other CC licences.

Hope that helps,
