When you say selling your books for themselves, do you mean the ones you
printed and bound or copies they may print and bind for themselves?
This brings up an interesting question which I have asked before but do not
recall seeing an answer to.
Say I print up some books with CC BY-NC works and give them to friends as
gifts. Can they sell them when they are done? To a used book store? Can the
used book store sell them? If I printed a bunch and gave them to a friend who
owns a new book store, could he sell them? (In other words, money would
definately be going from hand to hand, but not in connection with the person
making the copies in rthe first place.)
all the best,
