In a site where i wanted to download a sound track to use in my project, i read that the license of that sound says:
"This work is licensed under the Sampling+ License." link
What does this mean exactly? can't i use this item for commercial use?

Commercial use: You need to alter it significantly or mix with other sounds to the point that we can say it is a new creation.
Noncommercial use: You can use it analtered.
In both cases:
As the license says, you can't use it directly for commercial use without altering it, but if you use it as a sample that you make creative changes to, then it is authorized for commercial use as a portion of your own artistic creation, provided that you give attribution to the original creator for their portion of the work.
