"Non-commercial licences", in this context, means copyleft licences
which don't allow any commercial use, that is only personal use or use
in free-as-in-beer products is allowed. Use in products that cost
money is not allowed.

Copyleft licences such as the GFDL (under which text on the projects
is licenced, and some images are licenced) permit commercial use. This
basically means that I can use the image in a product and then sell it
for money.
