Quite so. What matter is basically just these user rights:

- redistribution
- modification
- sell it

It's really not that hard, but still too many people can mess it up.
The "sell it" is bascially the omission of NC clauses, which have an
unclear legal status. Is a private university that sells education
(high education fees) commercial or not?
