Not necessarily, see below.
Those who already got the tracks from Opsound can probably use them
commercially, and they can give away the track but the license is not
transmitted with the tracks. So those who get the tracks from these
people cannot use them for commercial purposes. Otherwise one wouldn't
been able to license things with many different licenses. Am I wrong?

I've found a blog post about these kind of issue:

Maybe the author is wrong, but my understanding is similar.

I don't know, that's why I'm asking for clues. :-)
I'm not worried about what one could do. I just don't want to relicense
these tracks on all the places that hosts them. I don't want to confuse
people by having different licenses for different tracks. Moreover, two
of these tracks are taken from two different albums.

At this point, I'm considering relicensing all my music under the by-sa
license, but I'm not sure yet.

It's too much hassle for having submitted these tracks on a website with
an unclear (at least to me) policy. I haven't signed an agreement or
anything there. I just upload a bunch of tracks since I thought (and I
still believe) it was a nice initiative (I mean, a website that hosts
exclusively cc-licensed music) and I wanted to promote my music there.

>> IANAL, and of course I'm not sure about this. But this is my understanding.

Thanks for your help.
