Could you explain to me why free licenses are going to be treated
differently under the law than licenses that are not free?

The only argument I've seen so far revolves around consideration, and
an easy argument there is the warranty clause and/or ego enhancement
by useage. [And even if it still means that they must be treated
differently, I'm still at a loss as to how they should be treated
differently under law.]
