Agreed on pretty much all fronts. I happen to think that GPL like licences are generally superior to all other alternatives. Where I differ from some people is in my belief that there are in fact cases where the GPL either isn't the best choice or isn't realistic. In the end the market will decide. And that is as it should be. Artificially forcing others into corners is only going to tend to isolate and weaken those who advocate such an approach.
