This whole thing smacks of irrational management panic.  Someone up
the org chart doesn't understand Creative Commons and freaked out.
They probably don't even have a good reason, and their leaving it to
their underlings to flail about trying to explain it.  Fascinating to
see this played out publicly like this.
