On the contrary, I'd say it's very different: There's a lot of
difference between "indirect" profit from the free sharing
of a work and "direct" profit by controlling the distribution
of the work.
In fact, I think there's probably a lot of people who wouldn't
care about the indirect profit issue as long as they could
retain a monopoly on selling CDs or whatever medium they
chose (or on per-track download fees).
But clearly this is not the meaning of the current NC clause.
