Usually, it’s tough to know if you can use Creative Commons content on your website or blog. What dictates the ability to use NC-CC licensed content? Well, while there isn’t directives on this… there are some guidelines.
There is also a nice little flowchart that shows you how to tell. From my perspective, not being a legal anything…. I can say that rule of thumb seems to be that if you have ads, then you better not be using the licensed content as the ad. Also, you cannot be a commercial entity of any sort. That sort of defeats the purpose of the NC part of the licensing directly.
So for wholly owned blogs by commercial entities? NC-CC licensed stuff seems to be off-limits. Personal blogs though? Go nuts. Of course, maybe the legal department would disagree, but so far from what I’ve read, it seems to be the general consensus.
