This could change with future content but such pages will be marked as protected. We're talking excerpts from books, not my regular articles. Sorry but I still need to make a living. Most of this is free.

*For this purpose “Noncommercial Use” includes use by accredited k-12 schools, universities, and colleges; regardless as to whether they are a private or public institution.


The license has been created by an organization called Creative Commons and the lengthy legal definitions are no joke (available through the link I have provide). Lawyer's fees are also no laughing matter. CC is a non-profit organization. Please visit their website https://creativecommons.net and look at the ways you can support CC.

It's worth noting the summery description may be flawed and does not override the content of the law as written by Creative Commons. Please refer to the links provided for more detailed information. I have no idea how likely this is. My knowledge of the law is: "It's a legal issue? Into the big black box of things I don't understand".
