- 1 ) A creative commons, non-commercial use, no derivatives tier.
- 2 ) A commercial tier (usually the paperback).
My idea was that the ebook version could be bought, and the freebie would drive sales to the commercial version. I know that most people still prefer paper. Well, guess what happened? In spite of the creative commons non-com/no-derivative license, all kinds of shysters came out of the woodwork, took the free ebook version, and sold it in PAPERBACK form for more than my LIST PRICE!!!! They plastered their ads all over the internet! I can't really say I'd do that again, except for a book from which I expect no revenue.
