Sorry, I've been working in Alberta for a few days or I would have asked
this earlier. In a backchannel discussion, Russell and I were wondering
about the reverse side of Ian's question: if a Canadian living in Canada
uses a US CC license for a work, do their moral rights still obtain, or are
they implicitly considered to be waived?
These sorts of questions won't go away until the CCCa licenses cover full
options for the use and/or waiving of moral rights, so someone should
probably formulate an answer for the FAQ page.
