I wrote a 50 page manual that I plan to release for free. I do not mind if the book is copied, translated, printed, shared, ... I just want two things:
- I am the only person who can sell a copy of this manual on Amazon (and others).
- If anybody uses the material from the book that the original author (me) is mentioned somewhere.
Under which license should I publish the book?
The closest fit would be Creative Commons "Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike". That will allow translations (and expansions, clarifications, electronic versions and so forth) but prevent commercial distribution of the original or any derived version.Tweet
