: If I put a song or particular recording of one under the OAL, what effect does that have on derivative works which were created when it was under my own Generic Unspecified Copyright License With Liberal Usage Terms? (eg. Kris' Asia Carrera cover, millions of songs of Jake's) Probably none. I can't be expected to have my actions restricted by arbitrary people who created derivative works that I don't know about, and the creator of a derivative work can't be expected to relicense their work after the fact just because I did it with the original work.

This is all purely hypothetical. I don't think I want to use the OAL. A copyleft license for music doesn't sound right. Perhaps my long proximity to BSD advocates has affected my judgement.
