@starbreaker @cwebber @Shamar so, disclaimer: obviously I do not want to go and tell you what to do.

But.

1. "I can't imagine people doing anything with X" is something I've seen in debates about Open Data (government officials saying "who would do anything with X kind of data?"), copyright, art, etc. Each time it turned out that indeed there would be people doing something.

@starbreaker @cwebber @Shamar ...Here's my favorite example: youtube.com/watch?v=lsReygHnXA

This exists, because everyone from Linux kernel devs, through webserver devs, through OSM devs, up to OSM editors released stuff on open licenses. Nobody had this outcome in mind, and yet here we are.

I feel it makes sense to not limit the potential, not limit the possibilities, with an NC license.

@rysiek @starbreaker @Shamar Notably the Linux kernel itself was originally under a noncommercial license and that changed.

Imagine how much worse the world would be if the Linux kernel were under NC!
