Just out of interest, I took a look at what was being offered by this guy
( and I noticed two things:

1. It's a subscription-based service

2. It's licensed under "Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License"
with a direct link to

That link states "You are free to:

Adapt — remix, transform, and build upon the material

for any purpose, even commercially."

So, I contacted the original poster of the promotional email (not to this
list, as far as I can tell, although the reply was copied here), asking "Does
this mean that if I subscribe to your list, I can sell the content on to my
customers?" and got the following interesting reply:

So, if anyone thinks there's even the slightest value in using these lists, we
only need a single subscription between us, and then the lists can be
distributed for free (or 1¢ per copy, or whatever someone thinks is

So, it may be subscription-only, but we could easily make it one subscription
per world, if we want to.
