I switched this blog and the WP Guides to a CC license today, and I had a thought which I posted over in the forums…..
Genuine question !
If a blog offers it’s content under a Non-commercial License, yet a Search Engine offers search results that include that blog, is that Search Engine breaking the license terms if there are Ads on the results page given that without the blog results they would have no service ? (In other words your efforts result in commercial profit for them)
If they CAN do this, what’s the point of the licence ?
If they CANNOT, then who wants to tell them ?
This is not a question to bash any SE in particular, it’s a genuine question.
