Note that Creative Commons publishes a license construction set.
A CC license can easily make your software non-free.

It is good that they publish such a set of licensing components,
because it enables people to publish work with more degrees of freedom easily
and it help the debate.

The difference to GNU for Software is, that Creative Commons
does not give a good answer to what freedom is actually needed and why.
For Software the debate has been lasting decates,
with software and music this is more complicated.
