I don't think that's what CC-SA means. I think it means that I can
sell things if I want to, so long as *reuse* is permitted as it was
for the original dataset. In other words, if I produce a derivative
of a CC-SA licensed work, I am obliged to distribute my work under
that same license. Doesn't stop me selling it, it just means I have
to let other people produce derivatives of my work.
