Richard Stallman on P2P

  "I no longer endorse Creative Commons. I cannot endorse Creative
  Commons as a whole, because some of its licenses are unacceptable.
  It would be self-delusion to try to endorse just some of the
  Creative Commons licenses, because people lump them together; they
  will misconstrue any endorsement of some as a blanket endorsement of
  all. I therefore find myself constrained to reject Creative Commons

Nothing about GPL-compatibility there, but I'd expect CC's TPM-ban
would be an additional restriction and therefore GPL-incompatible.

Hope that helps,
