i am looking for a short statement regarding non commercial use of photos.

i am giving a cd of some photos i took this summer of a boat to the owner, but i want some clause on the cd saying they are for non commerical use only. i don't want him putting them up on a web site and trying to sell them.

anyone got a short text file with a decent non commercial use statement?

i was hoping for something along the lines of "you are hereby granted non exclusive non commercial use....."

You can also use Creative Commons. The website can generate a nice license for whatever level you want. Public Domain to "I keep it all". I put a custom one in CDs I give to models so they can reprint at Wal-whatever.
