a)   The only difference between the example I described, and what I
have seen, was that instead of using the CC-NC licence, a much more
restrictive licence was used.

b) A few years ago, I decided that I would never work for a
non-profit, doing fund raising.   It is just too unethical, when it is
legal. [Maybe I worked for a string of unethical non-profits. 
However, given that their operating budgets ranged from over a million
dollars a year, to under a hundred dollars a year, operated in
different geographical areas, and had different missions, I doubt that
what I saw was unusual. ]

The item was not sold by the gitt shop.  The sales were reported by
the gift shop.

I just described how a non-profit can sell the item, without violating
the NC licence.


The easiest way to clean it up, is to delete everything but D(1)(a) from D(1).


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