That's what I thought, too; but as Pierre-Carl pointed out, the CC By
definition at
actually imposes TWO conditions. The first one, everyone knows:
"Attribution — You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the
license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any
reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor
endorses you or your use." But there's also this second one: "No
additional restrictions — You may not apply legal terms or
technological measures that legally restrict others from doing
anything the license permits."
