may somebody share his knowledge to know more about creating license for
May be this is not a suitable forum but I know Adam and other guys who has
studied CC well (sorry if i am wrong)

Basically,  I am trying to start a printing facility for wiki type book in
India ( http://wikipress.in ) , So I like CC-By-SA from heart but in my
opinion CC is not good license for wiki. infact i am unable to find suitable
license till date (and GUI too).

Here are my questions

1) How can I create a new license ?
2) is CC-SA is a valid license scheme ?
3) If my content is present on web under CC-By-SA then what happen after my
death ? does it goes under public domain ?
4) I do not think 'public domain' really exist.
4.1) If I put some article under public domain, anybody can modify small
spelling mistake and make a new copyright notice "(c) new brother, All right
reserved" ! is it true ?
5) I want to have some sort of Viral Licensing scheme which allow user to
copy/paste/remix without attribution. For example If wikibooks and
Flossmannual follow this license, then users from wikibook can take any
portion of text/image and paste/remix/modify at Flossmannuals. This is
something like creating a "Pool Or Sea" of commons/knowledge. So in
nutshell, any modification to pool/sea increase its size. Because
attribution is not recorded at individual level, there will be any
difficulty to remix. This type of 'zero attribution' scheme is most suitable
for wiki contents where user add a very little. But license has to be
copyrighted with somebodies name, we can take a centralized name like (c)
GOD Or (c) fsf.org etc.
