Licensor hereby grants You a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive 
license to:

extract and reuse contents of the Licensed Work,


Section 3 - License Conditions.  The rights granted in Section 2(a) of 
this Public License are expressly made subject to and limited by the 
following conditions:
(c) ShareAlike.  If you Share an Adaptation,

(1) You must release it under the terms of one of the following:

(i) this Public License,

If I am right, please can someone talk to CC. If I'm wrong I'm very glad
