Clearly the GNU project is being mismanaged. Thus, assigning copyright to it is the wrong thing to do.
The mistake in management of GNU is called micromanagement. There is a superman (Stallman) that seems to think that he knows everything, and all the software development must be done according to his views or interests. Unfortunately, many unconditional followers reinforce this wrong view.
This is wrong because he is not the most informed person take make most decisions. And he destroys the morale of many developers.
The right way to manage is freedom and responsability. Everyone should be responsable for one's work. One should be free for whatever he programs, and responsable for the results. Do not make any kind of suggestion about how he should work. He is the most informed person to make his own decisions. Just look at results. Value him only for the end results, with predictable evaluations, features added, shipping time and so on. Replace him if he fails.
