Discrimination based on field of endeavour I thought was the problem.
Even if some copyright exceptions allow use in situations in which the
license didn't *intend* to allow such use, the license still discriminates
based on the type of activity ("field of endeavour") - doesn't allow
The legal ability to use something for commercial reasons and being told
not to by the license are two separate things, though obviously related.
Being told not to by the license makes it a non-open license according to
This isn't to say non-commercial licenses are evil in all situations, I
can't pass that judgement. But if you use a non-commercial clause, you
certainly can't call the thing "open access" - it's accessible to some part
of the population, but it is not "open". Like this anthology (which by the
way looks like it's quite nice).
