Well, I know for me, if we don't make a reasonable stab at making the copyleft 
aspects of BY-SA stronger this round, I am thinking seriously of adopting 
BY-NC-SA for my photos and such with an additional permission to use the work 
for commercial purposes so long as the resulting work also grants the same 
commercial waiver. I would hate to do this but... We shall see.

all the best,
