There is a basic difference between free software foundation folks and
proprietary software folks. But both try to use practical and ethical
reasoning. As Josselin Mouette said:

This is a good example of the freedom, which is not used. So, why not to
take away it? GPL does similar things, it takes away the freedom of
using proprietary code with the GPL code from user. But we got something
in exchange - wide free software and documentation spreading.
I do not think Debian can safely ignore proprietary software existence,
as some people on this list do. If the world would be
black-and-white, I will put FDL on the white side of the black-and-white
world, together with GPL, FSF, Debian.
While we discussing FDL, clearly non-free software is still disributed
 probably, those people profess non-resistance to evil ;)
