Person A creates content and releases it under CC-SA-By
Person B uploads this content to Second Life
Person B distributes the content to Person C

Person C now has additional terms imposed on them that restrict their 
exercise of the rights granted under CC-SA-By because of the TPV 
agreement.  Previously they could run any client with export capability 
to download the work in order to modify it.  Now they can't do that. 
Their rights to redistribute and modify under the CC-SA have been 
restricted which is a violation of the CC-SA license.
