Next Steps: NonCommercial and NoDerivatives Discussion

Timothy Vollmer, Creative Commons, Dec 17, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Creative Commons has taken the 'next steps' in its discussion of the non-derivatives (ND) and non-commercial (NC) variations of its licenses. I have posted my objection to any changes, and especially changes that would brand the NC license as 'non-free'. As I point out, the majority of resources licensed under Creative Commons are NC resources. And as I have argued at length elsewhere, NC licenses are at least equally 'free', if not more free, because they preserve cost-free access for users.
