So far I have not heard any arguments why the CC-by-sa
cannot do this.
It can but can only do this when everyone agrees. Since wikipedia
currently has 282,180,603 edits by people who have not agreed such a
change is imposible.
have only heard a lot of FUD that I qualify as narcistic. FUD that does not
contribute to more FREE colloaboration and re-use.
I understand license text and copyright law can be considered FUD by
some however it is FUD that is important.
The one argument against the CC-by-sa that takes the
prize is the notion
that we will have less influence with Creative Commons ... yet another great
Not really. The fact is experience shows that every free license has
issues (for example CC-BY-SA 3.0 contains an invariant section clause
although I doubt that was CC's intention). Wikipedia by it's very
nature tends to hit these issues before anyone else. Having influence
means we in theory have a better chance of getting such issues fixed.
