comment How to comply with sharealike clause when using creative commons cc-by-sa licensed images in commercial work?
Maybe what I don't understand is what it means for me to distribute my derivative work under the same license. Does that mean I make my design files available on a website like wikimedia commons, or at whatever site I am selling my product? Do I just have to give the files to anyone who asks? Or would I not have to make the files of my design available at all, but anyone could make their own reworking of the original work that looked just like mine? If I am selling a product featuring the derived work, in what format do I also have to make the derived work available?

What I am having trouble wrapping my head around is how you need to make your derivative work available when building off of a sharealike work. Since my derivative work would need to also have a cc-by-sa license, presumably anyone should have access to my work in its entirety to use and modify under that license. If I were to sell my design on Cafepress or the like, would I need to provide a link to my design files in the description, in addition to attributions for the works my design built off of? What it comes down to is: How does one have to make the new work available?
