Well, even the FSF recommends to look at CC for licensing of art. I
only have a problem with the "non-commercial only" part of some
licenses (I think, it's only one of the CC licenses), because this
like "pollutes the environment", that CC also tries to create. CC is
not only about legal issues, it is also about making sharing possible.
So even the "no commercial" license explicitly allows distribution in
non-commercial ways and creates the impression, that it still is a
free licence, when in fact it isn't anymore.
I'm not sure, if I can express my point as clear as I could in my
native language, though.
