Hi. This is what the Creative Commons basically says. I have a question now. I don't really know how to interpret the law and the terms. Let's take the following situation. If you take a website that licensed its content under CC and use the content for a future project, let's say index the number of times some words appear in the text. So, I'm not adapting the work and not distributing it. Do I still have the legal right to use the content licensed under CC?
Or if I take wikipedia and get the words that have a link to a page. Use those words to link the words that appear on my website to the same address. Do I have to disclose that I performed some indexing on Wiki?
