I have a 10+ year old 800 page pfd someone wrote but never published and I'd like to publish it (not taking credit for it, just to own a physical copy). The original author is dead so I can't get permission from them.
The text was published online under Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 United States (CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 US) license. The website went down and now all that remains is the PDF saved on my computer.
Am I legally able to republish the work in any way? If so what would be the best way to do so?
I initially thought of publishing it through amazon but I believe that would violate the Non Commercial part of the license. Not sure.
