For a website, I'm using some dictionaries which were created by a community and licensed with the Creative Commons "ShareAlike" provision:
If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must distribute your contributions under the same license as the original.
Let's say that in our hypothetical dictionary, an entry is as follows:
banana (noun): 1. a curved yellow fruit. 2. a crazy person
If I have website where a user can search a word and get just the first definition (
1. a curved yellow fruit), does leaving out other information count as "transformation" or "remixing"?
I suppose this likely applies to other data sources, not just dictionaries, as well -- if I only partially use the information in the source, is that "snippet" affected by the ShareAlike provision?
