German NDR public television is beginning an experiment to release
its shows with a Creative Commons (BY-NC-ND) license. This basically
means that you are free to copy, distribute, display, and perform the
work under the following conditions:
- Attribution. You must give the original author credit.
- Non-Commercial. You may not use this work for commercial purposes.
- No Derivative Works. You may not alter, transform, or build upon this work.
What I like the most is the reason for this: NDR is public television, and its director Jobst Plog says that the content has been already paid for by the tax which is due for owning a TV set. Indeed.
