This tendency may exist, but I observe another one: the tendency to
reject commercial use from people who absolutely don't give a sh*it
about copyright, freedom and the free culture.

This I experimented myself.  Someone sells copies of articles I did
share under CC-by.  This person just does not care about the content,
about freedom or whatever.

So in that case, I'm angry.  Some people anticipate this and don't 
want to be angry, which is quite understandable.
