Terry and I was chatting the other day and this came up.

I have always thought that it would be possible to use a suitable non-Creative 
Commons NC type license on a derivative of a BY-NC licensed work or to treat 
the work as under a traditional copyright (ARR) so long as you did not make 
commercial use of it.

Terry thinks that such a thing could not be done.

Thoughts? He can perhaps better explain his thinking as to why it would not be 

all the best,
