Hi Raphaël et al,

It is good that you are giving this due thought :-).

Personally, I tend towards "libre licenses": cc-by-sa maximises
freedom even for future derived works (it also encourages growing the
commons via both commercial and non-commercial activities), cc-by is
ok if you don't mind people creating restricted versions/derivatives
of your work.

Using the NC clause is technically problematical. David Wiley
(opencontent) explains why in his "pro" opening statement here:

Regarding attribution for CC music played in a public place, after the
song append a sound clip with the attribution: Title, author, license.

A quick web search surfaced this page (which includes some useful hints):
