In my opition it's not a terribly offtopic subject for this list, but let my clarify that my intent is not to revisit the current licensing policy of Wikimedia projects.
I just thought that this could be useful to someone advocating for the use of fully libre licenses (the ones without any non-commercial clauses) outside Wikimedia projects, as it shows how the non-commercial clause could be interpreted by some actors that have resources and rights to go to court over your use of the work. > And secondly, there's nothing to prevent a rights owner > from granting a full/libre licence if they want to for the works they own: > so why would one need to advocate for it, here or anywhere else? Because many people think that non-commercial is good enough, for instance MPs establishing laws touching Freedom of Panorama.
