Perhaps you haven't read what the CAFC wrote. Here is a fragment.

  Through this controlled spread of information, the copyright holder
  gains creative collaborators to the open source project; by requiring
  that changes made by downstream users be visible to the copyright
  holder and others, the copyright holder learns about the uses for his
  software and gains others' knowledge that can be used to advance
  future software releases.
