Where CC-BY-NC-SA license?

Asked by Vadim Nevorotin on 2010-01-24

I've created a new prodject, but there is a small problem...
Where Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license? There is only CC-BY-SA, but there isn't CC-BY-NC-SA.

If a license isn't there, you have two options: either choose on
that's closest to it, or you can choose the category others :)

Yes, I understand)) But I can't understand why there is CC-0, CC-BY and CC-BY-SA, but there is not a Non-Commercial version! Moreover, first and second licenses is a little strange, but CC-BY-NC-SA is very popular for documentation but you haven't got it in your list. It's strange. Please, add a very popular Non-Commercial version of Creative Commons license to the list.

Well, I've tried to choose Others and type CC-BY-NC-SA as a license, but somebody marks it as proprietary!

But this license is fully compatible with Launchpad licensing policies (https://help.launchpad.net/Legal/ProjectLicensing)!

So I'm very interested in the official position about this popular license.

That license is not an open-source license:
https://help.launchpad.net/Legal/ProjectLicensing/Licenses

A restriction on commercial use means the license discriminates against "fields of endeavour", and this means that it contravenes Launchpad licensing policies.

Can you help with this problem?
