I have written documentation for two different programs.

One set of documentation is licenced under the CC-SA.
The other set is licenced under the CC-NC-SA.

There are more derivatives, and translations of the documentation
under the CC-NC-SA licence, than the one with the CC-SA licence.

Under your theory, the material under the CC-SA licence should have
more translations, and derivatives.

Can you explain why my experience contradicts your theory?


Ethical conduct is a vice.
Corrupt conduct is a virtue.
