I was reading "Your Guide to Publishing Open Access 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 only allow "Text & data min[ing]" for private use only and not for distribution? I understand one cannot make commercial use of it but does the ND (NoDerivatives) clause forbid the distribution of any form of text or data mining based on papers with such a license?
ND (NoDerivatives) is described by creativecommons.org as follows:
If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you may not distribute the modified material.
It's not obvious to me that the output of a text mining or data mining program necessarily qualifies as a derivative.
