Why didn’t you choose a ShareAlike variant of the Creative Commons license?

We want to make Open Hub data easily consumable by a very broad range of prospective users. While the ShareAlike license’s copyleft requirement can keep data open, it might make it less practical to combine the data with other sources. Because of this potential for limiting its value, Black Duck prefers a more liberal license for Open Hub data.
