The trouble with artwork and free software licenses

"CC-BY makes no such requirement, thus it is not copyleft and is incompatible with the GPL." - That sentence is wrong. CC-BY is compatible with GPL, it just has one requirement less, so it is even more free than GPL, but not so well protected against apropriation.
