Is theCrag a commercial website? Upload of NC licensed photos

I wanted to upload some photos to theCrag that are licensed under Non-Commercial (NC)

In particular: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/

Now, I'm wondering whether uploading such a photo to theCrag would violate those license terms.

On the one hand

  • all content is provided free of charge through the website - not even user registration is required

On the other hand

  • there must exist some commercial income from advertising
  • theCrag started offering Premium membership together with TopoGuru where photos uploaded to the website are shown to premium members.

How do you see this?

This is a fine line to walk - if in doubt consider us for business. Thanks for asking and taking copyright seriously!!

Ask the copyright holder if they are willing to re-license.
