I was reading the "Your Guide to Publishing Publishing Open Access with with Elsevier" (URL: https://www.elsevier.com/__data/assets/pdf_file/0020/181433/openaccessbooklet_May.pdf (mirror)) and saw this table on page 6:
Why does the CC-BY-NC-ND 4.0 license in this Elsevier onlyonly allow "Text & data data mine"min[ing]" for private use use only and and not for distribution distribution? I understand one cannot make a commercial use of it but does the ND (NoDerivatives) clause forbidsforbid the distribution of any form of text or data mining based on papers with such a license?
ND (NoDerivatives) is described by creativecommons.org described by creativecommons.org asas follows:
If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you may not distribute the modified material.
it'sIt's not obvious to me that the output of a text mining or data mining program necessarily qualifies as a derivative.
