I think that's a great way to go. I recently put my latest album up on
Bandcamp as a name-your-price download with no minimum price, not really
expecting to get anything from it, but some fans were indeed generous!
Selling merch (or even CDs or vinyl) can be great way to boost sales,
too, from what I've seen.

I don't think the licence really makes much difference in terms of
sales. If you're popular enough, people can and will copy your music
regardless of what licence is on it, so the fact that it's legal to do
so (within the licence terms) with CC licences doesn't really change
anything.

Either way, the people that want to support you will, and the people
that don't want to support you won't.

Things are a little more complicated when it comes to other sources of
money, such as licencing for TV, film, advertising, etc. if you're
interested in those. The NC clause protects you here, though, since it
prevents such people from using your music for free in most
circumstances. Since CC licences are non-exclusive, you're still free to
negotiate separate licence deals with anyone that does want to use your
work commercially.

Thanks
Leigh
