Large corporations should not be allowed to violate copyleft. If they are
creating derivative products from Wikipedia -- which they are -- those
derivative products should be released under CC-BY-SA.

Google Knowledge Graph seems to be somewhat close, in that there is an API
https://developers.google.com/knowledge-graph/ - but it is not CC-BY-SA.

Wikipedia's license is *not* CC-BY. It is CC-BY-SA.
