I'm by no means an expert of licensing stuff, but I have read the definition of the CC BY-NC-ND 4.0, and all the examples linked from this page, and the two parts I have put in red seem contradictory :
Attribution — You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.
NonCommercial — You may not use the material for commercial purposes.
NoDerivatives — If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you may not distribute the modified material.
From the example here : https://wiki.creativecommons.org/wiki/B ... d_slightly
It seems possible to modify "slightly" without breaking the license rules. What is the limit of slightly ? Honestly, I don't know. Is a search and replace because of a change in the game's API syntax a "slight" change, or a "derivative work" ?
Can someone who has a great understanding of the licensing things give us his insight ?
