I'm just a guy. However if cddb, and before that a certain mailing list,
tell me anything, it's that someone else asserting compilation copyright
on data I provided in a way that precludes me from using it, is
unpalatable. As long as there's a license that precludes someone from
taking the provided data private and making a profit, good.
I'm not opposed to profit, but if you want my data, pay me or keep giving
me stuff for free, (if) I gave you stuff for free.
