The music becomes more widespread making you more known and famous. And because its ideologically good your reputation shifts toward the "good side of the force" making it more likely that your music encourages the production of Remixes.
For me it exactly what I want because my marketing strategy is "Get known, make money with live-music, merchandise and other ways except selling the music as a product".

It also forces any people who use your music to produce samplers/compilations, remixes etc. to release it under the same license. This is the same Copyleft as in the GPL and ensures the freedom is granted.

You cannot sell your music as a product (CDs, Digital Download, DRM) anymore. Of course technically you could but it makes no sense if the music is also available for free.

In reality its basically means its free of cost, you can share it and its all legal. You can do whatever you want with the music, remix it sell the remix (if the license is *-sa) etc.

You cannot just take the CC-music and produce a closed, copyleft-free new derived work. But well, this is not "consumer"... if there is a border between consumer and producer anymore.
