That looks very good.

I wonder, though, whether adding a disclaimer is needed. If you take the "by" 
out of the Creative Commons license, as ajb suggested, then the major feature 
remaining is the disclaimer. Along with that is verbiage which makes the 
license much longer in order to require that the license remains associated 
with the "work".
