CC-SA has no external source provision, and specifically forbids any 
copy protection being applied to the content.

If people are free to turn CC-SA content non-free by uploading it to a 
service that requires every user to agree not to exercise their rights 
under CC-SA, then CC-SA is fundamentally flawed.
