I’d be all over this in a heartbeat if I could put it on my nook, or even download it and fix it to be read on my nook.
Sadly, CC-BY-NC-ND is no good for that purpose.
Format-shifting is considered a derivative work? I’d think that if I’m allowed to format-shift a copyrighted song, it’s also OK to format-shift a CC-licensed work, even with ND.
This paragraph (taken from a longer answer) to the question “Does my use constitute a derivative work or an adaptation?” as found on the CC website FAQs seems to answer the question:
“All Creative Commons licenses allow the user to exercise the rights permitted under the license in any format or media. This means, for example, that under the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-NoDerivatives 3.0 Unported license you can copy the work from a digital file to a print file, as long as you do so in a manner that is consistent with the terms of that license.”
Great book, very interesting read. Thanks for putting me onto it.
