Noncommercial means noncommercial. It does not necessarily mean, I (or  
my organization) necessarily reserves commercial rights for myself.
Journals with good creative commons models (all either permit or  
require noncommercial)

Why require attribution?
Asks whether the idea of the individual author / creator is an  
invention of the Enlightenment that is becoming less relevant with the  
emergence of collaborative projects such as Wikipedia and Occupy.
