I received a mail from opsound. It seems that the license has always 
been by-sa.

Most websites that host music don't require any license at all. You just 
have to be the copyright holder and you must agree to let them publish 
your music on their website. Other sites, like Jamendo, let you choose 
which cc license you want to use.

Probably, when I submitted my tracks it wasn't clear enough (at least to 
me) that the music should be licensed that way.

Anyway, sorry for the noise.
