I license my photographs using a CC-BY-NC-ND license. I want people to
make as many copies of them as they'd like, not make money off of
them, and not alter them without permission. I don't necessarily want
them being incorporated into other works in ways I don't agree with,
without my knowledge or approval.

Is this contrary to the spirit of creative commons?
