CC-SA says:

"You may not offer or impose any terms on the Work that restrict the 
terms of this License or the ability of the recipient of the Work to 
exercise the rights granted to that recipient under the terms of the 
License."

If anyone has uploaded CC-SA licensed textures or other materials to 
Second Life, they are now in violation of that license because of the 
new third party viewer policy section 2b which forbids reproduction of 
materials that were uploaded by someone else.

As well, any full perm materials uploaded to Second Life under a GPL 
license cannot fulfill their requirements either since there have been 
additional restrictions placed on the distribution.
