Subject Apache licence vs cc-by-sa
Date Fri, 16 Jun 2017 20:39:26 GMT
Hello all,

I have decided since for a while, to publish only under an Apache license
all the photos that I upload to Wikimedia Commons, because they are
destinated to an uni which will select those to integrate to its internal
photographic collection. For this reason, I wish delivery the material with
a maximum reusability, without any problem..
For instance, I want to avoid that if some of my images shoud be inserted
in a document (thesis or other works), they couldn't influence the
conditions of use of the created document. I want to allow the author of
the final document to choose whether to publish his document under a free
license or not. Of course the internal parts under ALV2.0 are to be
announced by a notice in the global document.
Others tell me that it's also possible to do that with internal parts
(texts or images) licenced under a cc-by-sa. But for me, a composite
document integrating parts (images or texts) under a cc-by-sa license has
to be licensed globally under cc-by-sa only, because this licence is not a
permissive one. To be OK, a cc-by and not a cc-by-sa should be used in this

Thanks for your advices
