No, all Magnatune music must follow the same CC, first to make it easy for users, and second, because it's my philosophy behind the site. The "Music Sharing License" you linked to above is about putting music on peer to peer networks, which isn't what Magnatune's about.

Magnatune's not for you then. As an artist who has had to go through the "asking permission" system I know that "ask permission" ends up being "don't use it". I really believe that artists today have a responsibility to future artists to allow their works to be an inspiration to other artists in the future.
I've also benefited too much from GNU and Berkeley-style licensed software, which is essentially a "derivative works allowed with attribution" license, to be so selfish as to not contribute works to that style of licensing.
If you want to require permission for derivative works, that's fine, it's your opinion, but Magnatune isn't for you.
