  3.   Allows Non-Commercial Mixing, Sharing and Adaptation

  4.   Open Ended Licensing of Derivatives and Mixes

  5.   Mostly Allows Use of Original Work for Commercial Use  

   including copying, distributing, and transmitting the work

  1.   Allows Original Work for Non-Commercial Use including

   copying, distributing, and transmitting the work

Use of Original Work for Commercial Purposes in Most Circumstances means that anyone can copy, distribute, and share the work for all minor level commercial purposes.  In other words you couldn’t enter any major contracts using the original work including iTunes, book publishers and distributors, and other major contracts and large scale sales.  The original author holds the rights to their royalties for major contracts with any corporate distributors.  Anything else, including derivative works can be use any way you like, just give credit where due, and if you are using hardly any of the work, or it is so fast it just doesn’t make sense to credit it, don’t worry about it.  Use common sense, consider that if you look in the perspective of someone who does large scale purchases compared to someone who does small scale, always use the small scale perspective and contact the author if you feel you could be entering a large scale contract that they might want to be informed about.


Any of these permission constraints can be waved by getting permission directly from the author. 

If any component of this work is within the Public Domain, this license does not affect or change that status.

Use common sense when using someone else's work, and use it fairly and morally as the author would intended it to be used as best as possible, including respecting privacy and collaborative group works that involve more than one person.  Trust and values are essential for the collective growth of common and publicly available work.  And remember there can always be additional contracts the author has with other organizations and people which should not be interfered with as best as possible.  If you have knowledge of that type of contract and you fear you may be interfering simply contact the author as best you can.
