To Share Alike or Not To Share Alike



Looking at my Creative Commons license, BY-NC-SA, it reads:
to Share — to copy, distribute, display, and perform the work
to Remix — to make derivative works
Under the following conditions:

Attribution. You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work).
Noncommercial. You may not use this work for commercial purposes.
Share Alike. If you alter, transform, or build upon this work, you may distribute the resulting work only under the same or similar license to this one.

For any reuse or distribution, you must make clear to others the license terms of this work. The best way to do this is with a link to this web page.
Any of the above conditions can be waived if you get permission from the copyright holder.
Apart from the remix rights granted under this license, nothing in this license impairs or restricts the author's moral rights.
Disclaimer
An altrernative to this license is the BY-NC license which reads:
to Share — to copy, distribute, display, and perform the work
to Remix — to make derivative works
Under the following conditions:

Attribution. You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work).
Noncommercial. You may not use this work for commercial purposes.

For any reuse or distribution, you must make clear to others the license terms of this work. The best way to do this is with a link to this web page.
Any of the above conditions can be waived if you get permission from the copyright holder.
Apart from the remix rights granted under this license, nothing in this license impairs or restricts the author's moral rights.
I think I might remove the Share Alike requirement. As long as the resulting work contains this license, anyone reusing that work would still be required to give me attribution and not use it commercially. Right?
