Explaining my edits

Hi folks,

I split the first proposal because it described what it was doing as 'clarifying' the NC definition, but its example was actually changing the NC definition so something now considered NC would become commercial (specifically not-for-profit filesharing). If you think that's pedantry, feel free to roll them back into one proposal - I don't support either, I just wanted the language to be crystal clear.

Apologies for my absence (K 09:56, 29 February 2012 (UTC)). Just in case this regarding ShareAlike is still relevant in the NC discussion: Does it make sense to discuss "ShareAlike" generically? Why not?

e.g. CC-BY-SA is conceptually very different from CC-BY-NC-SA.
CC-BY-SA is pro-freedom for society.
CC-BY-NC-SA is pro-choice on behalf of authors - including the choice to impose restrictions on readers.
