But that's a communication problem, not a license problem.  The thing
to do is help Jenny learn how to use free licenses.

Programmers go through this learning process too.    When to use a
BSD, GPL, or LGPL license?

Requiring learning is OK.  People can do this.

That's especially true with the NC licenses, which a whole generation
of creators are exploring by doing the wrong thing.  Let them go
wrong.  They will discover that NC work disappears into a dead zone,
while SA becomes part of a thriving ecosystem, and the next time
around they will know.

The best thing we can do to help Jamming Jenny is not pander to her
