Just saw a CC No Derivatives licensed artwork fly through my timeline. I have opinions on -ND:
ND doesn't stop bad things (say, appropriation) from being done, while stopping good things (say, translation) from being done.
On a broader level it makes promoting and building libre-culture together harder.
ShareAlike is as effective at stopping some bad things (say, corporations using stuff in ads) from happening, while explicitly allowing the good.
I dive deeper into my reasoning in the blogpost (inb4 "like and subscribe").
Sorry about the subtoot (kinda-sorta), but didn't want to jump into the artist's thread and do a reply-guy thing.
Obviously everyone has the right to choose whatever license they like and feel suits them best!
But I feel there is a lot of mythos around what No Derivatives can and cannot do, and I believe it is harmful to the broader libre culture movement.
