Creative Commons publishes a number of licenses, but all of them are
significantly more restrictive (and more complicated) than the BSD license,
to the extent that they are incompatible with traditional standards for free
software.  Since PostgreSQL graphics should be available for inclusion into
program packages (e.g., menu icons) or documentation, this would be a serious
restriction.
