So Simon, is your concern (A) over a license that allows new derivative
work (and loss of control of quality, etc with your name on it) that
bothers you, or does (B) the general release of material (open access)
but with a "no derivative" restriction and an Attribution clause also
bother you? Would you be OK with releasing some of your content if it
didn't allow new derivative work?
Second, is there a "CC" license that would work for you? I think the
main point again is that if you are willing to make any of your material
available through our group's inventory system you should license it as
you see fit to meet your own concerns. So do any of the CC licenses work
for you given your concerns?

Third - I find this a very interesting and important conversation for
our group. I think we should have an IRC chat on this topic alone, with
Puneet on (he's been working with CC) and maybe even through him we
could get another CC representative to attend so these
questions/concerns can be raised.
But I think the first IRC meeting needs to be about our group's goals in
general and then we can line up another IRC (assuming that works OK for
us) to focus on this issue in particular (or others that the group feels
we should have).
