There's no money in linked data
Alan Ruttenberg shared Pascal Hitzler's post with you.
This paper discusses the use of Creative Commons licenses for linked data, making the case that in many cases the use of these licenses - even CC-BY - does not, in practice, mean that commercial use can be made. It's worth a review by CC, possibly a response, and certainly as an additional argument for promoting CC0.
