Lieve precisazione: la FAQ cc.org prima menzionata dice quanto segue 
(riporto per comodita'):

Can I use a Creative Commons license for software?

In theory, yes, but it is not in your best interest. We strongly 
encourage you to use one of the very good software licenses available 
today. (The Free Software Foundation and the Open Source Initiative 
stand out as resources for such licenses.) Unlike our licenses -- which 
do not make mention of source or object code -- these existing licenses 
were designed specifically for use with software.

Note that no Creative Commons license has been certified as open source 
by the Open Source Initiative and any license containing the 
NonCommercial or NoDerivatives properties definitely does not quality as 
open source, as they violate the Open Source Definition's No 
Discrimination Against Endeavor and Derived Works criteria
