Could you explain that? My understanding was that something released
under CC-BY could be used pretty much anywhere as long as it's
appropriately attributed. We attribute all content on Wikipedia, so
why can't we use it? (The other direction obviously can't be done,
there's no dispute there, as far as I can see.)
