It's vitally important to remember, though:

Creative Commons' interests are *not* our interests.
The FSF's interests are *not* our interests.

The FSF's may be a little closer, in that more of their licenses are
free-content licenses and they make it easy to distinguish between
them - unlike CC-by-sa 3.0, where some versions are free content and
some aren't.

But neither has our interests at heart. They have their interests at heart.
