Anatomy of a CC License

19 Part 3 – Discussion

Week 5: NC SA

NC and SA: Both the NonCommercial restriction of the Creative Commons licenses and the ShareAlike condition of the licenses are poorly understood by novice CC users – and even some long-time users. How would explain the issues with NC to a person choosing to use a CC license for the first time? How would you explain the way SA works to a person choosing to use a CC license for the first time?

Week 6: ND

The NoDerivatives clause prohibits users from creating adaptations of a licensed work. However, as we’ve learned, not all changes to a work “rise to the level” of an adaptation. For example, format-shifting (from digital to print, or print to audio, or PDF to HTML) does not constitute an adaptation. Minor changes to spelling or punctuation also do not constitute an adaptation.

How has your understanding of the ND condition changed from before you started studying for the certification to now? How do you feel about your current understanding compared to your previous understanding?
