I have no idea in what way this is different from all the misquoting of TA, copyrighted material that goes on all the time, i.e., why this would get worse with CC-BY as opposed to NC or ND? Do ND licenses prevent quoting? That would make them completely useless as scholarly licenses. Conversely, if you allow quoting, you allow misquoting. Surely, your aim is not to prevent quoting?

Can you explain how one license prevents misquoting (or quote-mining), compared to another license? Specifically, if I had licensed my email ND, would you be in violation of said license?
If so, if my ND licensed work ever gets misquoted or otherwise misrepresented, by accident or intent, do I get to sue the person quoting or citing me?

Then I would really consider licensing my most difficult to understand work ND and wait for the money to flow :-)
