Can you buy a closed proprietary code and than realease it under GPL?

That doesn't buy freedom, it buys a work.

Hey, it seems you want to argue everything from my email address ;)

I can pay to the code owner, so that he will release it under the Public Domain license and distribute it.

You mean, what I *had*, was not freedom. After I have bought it, i do have freedom regarding this program.
