Isn't that as clear as a license? Why can't that be seen as a license?
Because there are so many possible interpretations of that. For example, are you OK with someone taking it, pulling out your name, and simply re-releasing it for credit, or even profit?

If not, then you need to be more specific than that, hence licenses.
