Re: The trouble with artwork and free software licenses

There are some non-copyleft licenses that are compatible with GPL because they allow for relicensing of the original work under different terms (i.e., under GPL) -- either explicitly or by virtue of their simple requirements. CC-BY does not allow for relicensing, as it explicitly states in clause 4(a).
