Commit bc41a7f36469 ("LICENSES: Add the CC-BY-4.0 license")
unfortunately introduced LICENSES/dual/CC-BY-4.0 in UTF-8 Unicode text
While python will barf at it with:

FAIL: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xe2 in position 2109: ordinal not in range(128)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "scripts/spdxcheck.py", line 244, in <module>
    spdx = read_spdxdata(repo)
  File "scripts/spdxcheck.py", line 47, in read_spdxdata
    for l in open(el.path).readlines():
  File "/usr/lib/python3.6/encodings/ascii.py", line 26, in decode
    return codecs.ascii_decode(input, self.errors)[0]
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xe2 in position 2109: ordinal not in range(128)

While it is indeed debatable if 'Licensor.' used in the license file
needs unicode quotes, instead, let us force spdxcheck to read utf-8
instead.
