Too dang many distibution licenses

So I have a book I'm putting together, I want to keep copyright myself, but I want it to be freely distributable provided it is not modified or sold for profit.

I've looked at several distribution licenses and none seem to cover that..I probably am just missing something.

Anyone?

Thanks David. I think that's what I'm looking for. Do you know/see any difference is stating that it is using that particular license or in just saying "Free to distribute but No Sales, No Modification" ?

I'm not sure I understand the question, but I just found that in a quick search, I don't have any experience with it.

That's exactly what I was looking for, and had seen it referenced in at least one google search.

My question really is whether to "License" it under that creative commons or to just simply say on the Copyright page those couple of things. I don't know that one gets much out of "Officially" releasing with links to that license. Dunno???

...but I'm trying to complete the assembly of this work today and will let everyone know when it's out there.

Ah. Good practical question. Do you value adherence to the terms of the license enough that you'd be willing to send out persuasive-looking takedown notices to those violating them? And/or do you anticipate much violation? If so, I'd say go the extra ... not so far and incorporate the CC license. If not, hard to see much benefit.

This is friendly, non-professional advice from an unpublished hack who doesn't know jack, so it might be best to do the opposite of whatever the above paragraph made you feel inclined to do.

Good luck on assembly! I hope to be doing some of that soon myself.

I think it is Amanda that uses Creative Commons... not 100% but one of our regulars does. Find her and bug her.

Well I stuck the Creative Commons distribution link in the book and will go with that I guess.

Thanks Everyone!
