Thank you, Alex, for addressing the issues I asked about in my “angry rant”.

I think contest entrants need to know that the license allows someone to SELL their work without notification or payment to the original creator. You don’t make that clear in any of the material for the contest, although the license link itself does indicate that others may make commercial use of the material. “anybody can copy, change, and distribute,” is not the same as “anybody can copy, change, distribute, or sell”.

Could you please make that clear for next year’s entrants?

As someone without a Google+ account, I can’t access the discussion thread you link to where these issues are discussed. Could someone please post the contents of that thread somewhere?
