An odd-ball thought...

This has not actually happened to me--I'm just pondering it. Suppose I post work published under someone else's Creative Commons license with a non-commercial restriction. I post this work on a site hosted by a 3rd-party, such as a blogging service. When I post the content, the site is ad-free. Later on the site starts placing ads on the same page with the content I posted. Now, noone would argue that I personally had made commercial use of the content. Regardless, if I were the owner of that content and saw my content posted on a page with commercial advertisements, I might cry foul.

Does anyone have practical experience with this?
