 Replying to [comment:2 Otto42]:
 > Question: Why are we using a Non-Commercial license for these videos?
 This clause makes the videos incompatible with the GPL and thus
 unavailable to be used in various other works of ours.

 Generally, we try to ensure that videos submitted to WordPress.tv are free
 of advertising and promotion, so that was my thinking with the non-
 commercial aspect of the license.  However, I agree it is limiting when
 viewed in that light, and not in the correct spirit to align with the GPL.

 CC-BY-SA works for me.  Here is the updated code:

 <a rel="license" href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-
 sa/4.0/"><img alt="Creative Commons License" style="border-width:0"
