yes, that is correct. I think Rob was making a plea for
leaky buckets :)

BTW, I like the Magnatune model a lot though, great idea:
non-exclusive use, 50% split followed by CC-BY-SA-NC
opens the party up a lot more to individual creators.

Even better in this case, where use is non-exclusive it effectively
forces (always good) the Org to be all the things it should/could:
eg a solid citizen, effective brand, promoter of talent.

I'm strongly tempted by this.

It's a pity Magnatune is obviously wildly unsuccessful: do we draw
any conclusions here?

Or: is anybody else using CC licenses at the heart of a business model
and actually making a go of it? A flip round the CC website suggests not.
