Summer of NHibernate Content Licensing Structure

A number of (apparently hyper-honest smile_embaressed) people have asked for a license under which I am distributing the Summer of NHibernate Screencast series of videos to the world-at-large.  Seriously though, I really appreciate the question and hadn’t given it much thought but after careful consideration, I have settled on a variant of the Creative Commons licensing that provides for the following:

  • unlimited distribution by anyone so long as the distributor:
    • provides me attribution should the content be included in any other distribution
    • does not include the content in any commercial endeavor
    • does not make any modifications to the content

Basically, this is designed for anyone to take the content, view it, share it with anyone they want to so long as they don’t charge for it, redistribute it using whatever means they want so long as it remains clear that I am the author of this content, and they don’t change anything in the content.

For the official record, here is the license statement:
