In addition to what other people said in this thread, I also had no problem
understanding that page ( http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ -
here's the new version), but in any case I've written my interpretation of some
of the Creative Commons licences that I am using here:


I was told this interpretation conforms to the spirit of the CC licences, and
you may find it more usable than the creativecommons.org licence page (but I
doubt it and it's also much more wordy.)
