Regarding creative commons licensed work using the non-commercial
Suppose I were to offer said cc-licensed works on a website which
contained advertisement and the corporate entity that legally owns the
site generates revenue from these ads. The cc-licensed material would
be free and open to anyone visitng the site, maybe free reg.
Would this be considered infringement?
Does it make a difference whether the corporate entity owning the site
is structured as non-profit or for-profit?
Most, if not all, the revenue goes towards hosting and operating costs.
