The reduced insight has a downside too, CC is far more likely to result in a withdrawal of consent, because the people putting CC licenses on their work have often not really considered what that really means. That is: if you re-purpose a piece of CC-BY art in a way that its creator doesn't like it is not at all unlikely that they will declare that they never intended to allow you to do that, and although you could win a legal battle if you wanted to pay for the lawyers you will probably lose the moral argument and suffer damage to your reputation accordingly.
