I don't agree with his take, but I think one reason people take such stands / 
options is because, current copyright law has much bigger teeth and easier to 
use teeth than other laws which we may have to accomplish some needed things.

For instance, I am wary of putting photos of people under a BY-sA license 
which I would be happy to put my other photos under (if they ever make it 
stronger and I was doing until I figured out its weakness) as publicity 
rights and privacy rights are areas in which I do not even come close to my 
poor understanding of copyrights.

all the best,
