Sort of like a regulated way of making something Public Domain, with the catch that your name stays attached. Don't think it's so good for content you want to protect, the restrictive flavors of the CC license are often overlooked by users. So you may just as well open it up and use only the restrictions that you really want to enforce. Means, I prefer Share Alike over No Derivs. The Non-Commercial part seems to be respected by users, and since the Share Alike part gets it around much further, I actually had several requests for commercial licensing on my CC-licensed content.
      I am still debating weather to use Share-Alike or No Derivs
