Licence Compatibility

One of the major issues with any type of open licensing, whether it be software or content licensing, is licence compatibility. Which licence can I use to license a work that incorporates other licensed material? (try saying that 10 times fast!) That question hasn't been helped by the realisation that a number of fundamental free licences may in fact be incompatible and it is often quite tricky to determine whether two licences are in fact compatible.

Creative Commons Taiwan has since created a licence compatibility "wizard", which is very user-friendly and looks a little like a tic-tac-toe-ish. See the Creative Commons webblog entry about it here and the English version of the wizard here (for the multilingual commoner, the traditional Chinese version can be found here)
