Both of the situations are biased - each person will probably think their
preferred occupation is more creative or worthwhile.  If they thought
otherwise, they'd probably be doing the other task.  Why is this news
to anyone?

ObTopic: I agree with the arguments for using the MIT/Expat and the GPL.
I also think there's a gap in the market for a simpler share-alike for
non-program works and I think public performance is a bit of a grey area
for all free software (programs, audio, video, text, ...) which matters
more for non-programs.
