I would expect that Creative Commons would have a strong interest in
pursuing violations of any of their CC licenses, if only to establish their
legitimacy if that hasn't already happened. The Free Software Foundation
(FSF) has pursued violations of the GPL and LGPL on a number of occasions
on behalf of free software projects.

I'm curious though (this could be a separate thread), whether you're
looking to use CC-ND or are looking to dissuade others from using it, or
something else. It seems that it would be a very poor license to release
research data under. What is the reasoning for using this?
