The incompatibility between collection agencies and CC is fabricated solely
by part of the collection agencies, in the wording of their (far-reaching)
appropriation of rights from the creator.
There is no incompatibility in practice. Ie. if you use CC you are making
some allowances for people to use your work and you have full rights to do
so, regardless of what collection agencies might say, do, or wish. It's your
work. Their collection practices remain totally unaffected by your use of
CC, especially the Nc license. I know several examples of collection rights
societies members (and not just in Canada) who have used CC and continue to
be members, and get paid accordingly.
So don't let their scare tactics fool you, and go ahead and use CC if you
like - sooner or later they'll come around, once enough members are using
