@davidrevoy This is a reason I prefer CC-BY-SA over just CC-BY. To me it is the right balance of freedom vs. restrictions because it provides some stipulations to ensure derivative works retain freedom of distribution. (although I know some people prefer maximum permissiveness and others prefer more restrictions like non-commercial or explicit restrictions on use...chacun à son goût!)

Perhaps the SA provision would've provided some protection from the "artificial uniqueness" of the attached NFT? Like if the NFT owner got upset that someone just used "their" dreamcat then tough luck because they are obligated to let everyone use it freely so long as you and ROPLAK were credited? Then the NFT would have no market value?

I don't know...NFTs in most cases make no sense to me at all since the digital asset can be duplicated regardless of licensing or the attachment of an NFT.

@msh This application would be totally compatible and legal with CC-By-Sa. As long as the license is written along, and result available under the same license...

Only NC could stop NFT. ND could have prevented the DeepDream filter.

It's a case of Moral right, not legal right. Youll find it written on "Notices" at the end of every CC license (CC-By included) : https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.

@davidrevoy @msh If the NFT doesn't contain a copy of the work (which is my understanding at the moment) then even full copyright would not be a protection against it.

@davidrevoy @msh I avoid NC, because it tricks the honest re-users into a dead-end: https://www.draketo.de/light/english/politics/free-culture-danger-noncommercial

Example: If you had used NC for Lecture, I would have been forced to use NC for my roleplaying book to enable re-using it (assuming no other by-sa works were in there) and you wouldn’t be able to make money from stuff made by re-using my latex templates.

@msh @davidrevoy I think that while SA is not the right licence for everything and everyone, that in this case it would have been the ideal licence for what it sounds like you (David, not Mark) wanted for the artwork. I guess when you pick a licence it's a matter of thinking of the worst possible outcomes. Sad, really...

@DHeadshot @msh Unfortunately, SA is compatible with this case of DreamCats. Just mention the license and offer a way to get the file (right click, save as on OpenSea) and bim; compatible CC-By-Sa. The real NFT blocker is the NC/Non Commercial...
