Other non-free Creative Commons[edit]

Can we add the other non free Creative Commons licenses? I'm think about en:The Freesound Project which is under a non free license - Creative Commons Sampling + which doesn't allow commercial redistribution of unmodified samples. This seems to be the largest source of CC licensed audio samples but is certainly not free by our definitions. The other CC sampling license is even worse. Secretlondon 03:47, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Add them where? In "Common license conditions"? Sure, go for it. pfctdayelise (说什么?) 04:49, 4 November 2007 (UTC)


Wouldn't {{Cc-by-sa-3.0}} be a simpler recommendation than this:

  • {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}}: "Copyleft (Multi-license GFDL, all CC-BY-SA)"

I thought I read somewhere that people were trying to move more towards Cc-by-sa-3.0:

The preference for PD should probably be changed to CC0 as this license is much better at doing the same thing. Zellfaze (talk) 19:38, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
