> We are not just talking about the entertainment industry here; the simple fact of the matter is that anybody who values the provisions of the GPL is indeed interested in copyright. It is hard to demand respect for the GPL while refusing to respect the terms of other licenses.

I don't think this was RMS's state of mind when he created the GPL.

I understand the GPL as fighting fire with fire, i.e., a necessary evil. In other words, if there was no proprietary licences then the GPL would not have been created.
