Re: Commercial Use of Librivox Recordings

Running through this thread, and I'll respond in bits and bobs I think, first response: *But then, I also think it would be nice to offer soloists the option to use a CC-NC licence. Legamus does it, and Gutenberg Press also has a variety of licences now. When LV started there were no other options, ...
