So, on the front page of my web site, I put a disclaimer that the contents of
this site are copyright by me and licensed under CC BY-NC, click here if you
agree to the terms of the license and want to access the site.
Everyone here now says that it is OK where you are for a for profit company to
access this site for their business use?
And if that is OK, if I have a link to a BY-NC pdf file on the site, could
they pull that down? What about a BY-NC audio file on the site?
Just trying to clear this up.
all the best,
