No, I'm sorry but that is not correct - at least not in Sweden, and I do
suspect that other European countries have similar rules. A copyright
holder in Sweden is never bound by a general waiver of moral rights. He
may only waive his moral rights in a limited fashion. A waiver in a CC
license would not be considered to be in a limited fashion.
