As Santiago mentioned, and as seen in DFSG:

"No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor

The license must not restrict anyone from making use of the program in a
specific field of endeavor. For example, it may not restrict the program
from being used in a business, or from being used for genetic research."

So it restricts the use in commercial (even with the typo) -> non-free
