But what does all of that mean?

What it says.
From the perspective of The Five Elements, I want people to post links to it, email it around, host it on your site, etc. The more the merrier. A Creative Commons license of this nature is really meant to protect an artist's work while not restricting its consumption. There are other, more restrictive options, of course, but I'm making this eBook available for free, so why would I care if readers pass it around, too?
