I found this page helpful also for a general overview of what is new
in the 4.0 licenses:
"hpr at hackerpublicradio.org" <hpr at hackerpublicradio.org>

Here is a conversation on stackexchange about upgrading from 3.0 to 4.0

The takeaway from that page: an adaptation of material licenced under
3.0 can have the newer 4.0 license as long as it contains the same
In HPR's case the Attribution-ShareAlike elements, but the older
material can only have its license upgraded by express permission of
the author.

> Thoughts ? Anyone want to send in a show about this ?
After a quick review, I vote to move to the newer version of the
license, and I am agree to have my few contributions upgraded to the
latest license.
