By whom (and which interpretation)?

Attempts to extend the scope of share-alike reciprocation provision 
to the entire compilations (including some other preexisting and 
therefore necessarily nonderivative works) constitute misuse of the 
copyright. Feel free to license any rights that the statute would 
otherwise have reserved to you by default, but remember that there's 
NO exclusive right to prepare collective works and that the first 
sale doctrine applies to each and every lawful copy.
