“Non-commercial” survey by CC

Creative Commons is doing a survey on the term “non-commercial” that ends on the 14th.

This survey is very important as people have a difference of opinion on some of the boundaries of what non-commercial means. For a public licence, such as Creative Commons licences, having community input on the meaning of more ambiguous terms such as this is key to building a common understanding: It keeps the “Commons” part a common understanding and not a difference in law for people to argue over.

I have some background research on the non-commercial termm that I’ll try to post over the next few days.
