Hi Michael --
Other community members probably have better ideas than I do about how
to lay this out, but I just want to make sure you're clear on what CC+
expresses. It *does not* let you impose additional restrictions on
the CC license. It does let you point people to a place on the web
where they can obtain rights not already provided by the CC license.
So, for example, if you use BY-SA for your work, people could purchase
the rights (or clear the use with you) if they wanted to use your work
without Attribution or create a derivative that wasn't Share Alike.
Since BY-SA already gives commercial rights, they wouldn't need to
clear any commercial use with you. Perhaps you meant that you're
going to offer the work under BY-NC-SA and then give people permission
to use the work in a "not too commercial" fashion?
Apologies if I misread what you wrote, it just sounded like you've put
a lot of thought into how you can use a CC license to help spread your
work and that you're about to make a financial investment into this,
so I wanted to make sure this was clear.
