Creative Commons license draft version 2.0

Joi [1] just pointed out the draft of the Creative Commons by-nc-sa license version 2.0 [2]. There will be some changes regarding the warranties, a link-back to the attribution clause and among other points, compatibility questions regarding e.g. the GNU Free Documentation License are to be discussed.

On behalf of the compatibility issue Eric S. Raymond [3] worked out some guidelines related to open source in his Licensing-HOWTO. The compatibility between different licenses is from my point of view quite important e.g. for work that has been published prior the CC era. We should eventually start a compatibility list as it has been done for licenses regarding open source software. The idea is porbably not new though 😉
