This is an issue I have touched upon before.

Based upon the feedback I've had, people do not understand the BY-NC
licence.   [Their questions invariably are

i) Can I redistribute this?
ii) Can I make an extract of this?

With either BY-NC-ND or BY-NC-SA, the question I get is "I want to use
this in my church. Is that OK.?"


Ethical conduct is a vice.
Corrupt conduct is a virtue.
