At 57North Hacklab, we're CC-BY-SA. I considered a NC variant, but really I
don't care if people make money off things, as long as they share their
derivatives and acknowledge the hacklab/its members.

It wasn't until we went to get a free wildcard SSL cert from Globalsign that
we bothered with a license though. Advertising the open source license for
the materials was a requirement for getting the free cert.

An interesting other thing: "4273pi is a freely available, customised
distribution of Raspbian GNU/Linux for the low-cost Raspberry Pi computer.
4273pi is for those wishing to teach, learn or use bioinformatics on the
Raspberry Pi. 4273pi includes 4273pi Bioinformatics for Biologists, an Open
Access bioinformatics course."[1]

I met the guy that put 4273pi together, and they're releasing the course
materials as CC-0 because they assume people will rip it off anyway and they
have no intention of expending effort trying to stop people from ripping it
