Of cource not.  GPL requires derivative works to be as free as original,
and so does CC-SA.  There are good reasons to do so: some authors do
this to defend others' freedom, some do this because they don't want
their competitors to get unfairy advantage over them.  This is not just
"look at me and do as I do" thing.  But I don't know any good reason to
prohibit others from making profit -- if you are not against the very
idea of making profit, of course.
