Hello Gottfried.  What you describe is a very restrictive license,
unlike Creative Commons.

Dr. Arne Babenhauserheide’s non-restrictive, free culture stance is not
required in GNU, but non-free art is too much hassle for most of us.


You are okay with playback and modification of your song (which you make
possible by publishing the source), but for Guix only and you want to be
informed.  If you clearly state this, it is a license.  But:

For programs, the GNU philosophy is that granting the right to use,
study, modify for *any* purpose is the best choice, except GNU licenses
often disallow restricting the program.  Songs are different from
programs, though I believe Guix people would demand the rights before
including your song in the guix-artwork repository.

https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guix/guix-artwork.git

Also note that criminals (and even A.I. companies praised in media)
often disregard licenses.

No, I don’t see any connection between misuse and whether you use your
full name.

Normally attribution is to your name and/or e-mail address.

The license can be very short, but restrictive licenses are often long
to be explicit about all that is and is not allowed, when they allow
more than the short restrictive “All rights reserved” default.  For
well-known licenses, the name of the license like CC-BY-SA and the
version of the license is enough to tell.
