We certainly need to be clear about it on the uncompressed portion of the

But then that brings up the question of a slighly modified version of included on the CD still
the same license, is it still ok to call it the Creative Commons License?

Didn't see this question at first.

If you're planning to modify the legal code (i.e., create a new license) you can't call it a Creative Commons license.

If you're planning to include a web page derived from the deed, but still use the exact license, you can call the license a Creative Commons license, as you would actually be using a CC license. You might be very careful that your page accurately reflects what is in the license -- it would be misleading to say "this license only allows distribution in CD-ROM form". And you might provide a link to the license deed at

IANAL, etc.
