I attempted to ask this question on the Github community forums, but it was flagged as spam and awaiting a review before being open again.
I recently picked up the hobby of creative writing in my downtime, and I wanted to use Github to post a web serial novel as
.tex, but I don't want them to modify the text itself (a derivative) and share it.
Before I go any further, I understand I'm using Github in a way it wasn't intended, so it may be difficult to do what I want.
I attempted to research further, and it seems the
CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 licence is what I require.
CC BY-NC-ND 4.0licence correct for my situation?
From the Github's ToS:
Note: If you publish your source code in a public repository on GitHub, according to the Terms of Service, other users of GitHub have the right to view and fork your repository.
- As stated, I can't prohibit someone from forking the repository containing the
CC BY-NC-ND 4.0licence, correct?
The easiest solution would be to not use Github. It might be better to use Amazon KDP, as they are set up to handle this type of situation.
