I've looked some more and here are some specifics. The definition of
non-commercial use is complicated enough that MIT and Creative Commons
have put forward quite different interpretations of the same license -
is it about "the user" or "the use"? See:
Creative Commons vs MIT OCW: Interpreting the Noncommercial Clause
Note that Creative Commons is still in flux about this - see also the
other complexities at:
In early 2008 we will be re-engaging that discussion and will be
undertaking a serious study of the NonCommercial term which will
result in changes to our licenses and/or explanations around them.
What particular commercial uses are the authors of the Training Manual
concerned about? Is it licensed under other terms for some users?
And thanks again - it is very nicely done!
