more permissive cc license


Some thoughts about the license...

Here is the text on Access to Insight for one of Ajahn T's translations:
Terms of use: You may copy, reformat, reprint, republish, and redistribute this work in any medium whatsoever, provided that: (1) you only make such copies, etc. available free of charge; (2) you clearly indicate that any derivatives of this work (including translations) are derived from this source document; and (3) you include the full text of this license in any copies or derivatives of this work. Otherwise, all rights reserved. For additional information about this license, see the FAQ.

I'm wondering if the following license isn't closer to what Ajahn Thanissaro's work is listed as on Access to Insight:
http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/
Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike
CC BY-NC-SA
This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms.

I mention this because the license listed on the audtip.com wiki now does not allow derivative works but it would appear that the original one on A to I does. This license above, however, does not stipulate that derivative works must be noted as such.

The other issue is point (3) in the original requiring that derivative works include the complete license. I noticed that the files, and even the website on suttareadings.net does not seem to include this text. My thought is that if the audtip.com address is in the comment field and there was a copyright page on the website explaining things in detail that would be enough.

Thoughts? (use comment section below)
