CC has been a good idea, but it went terribly wrong IMO. Instead of
providing one license that can be truly called "free" the board
created a whole bunch of incompatible licenses, some of which forbid
almost as many uses as traditional copyright did. Most websites
providing artworks under one of the many CC licenses make this fault
visible by stating for example "This [xx] is licensed under Creative
Commons" which is a sentence that contains absolute zero information
and is a useless nonsense statement. For a critique of CC see for
example this article: 

An alternative could be the Free Art License:
