Even free licenses discriminate against those who violate the license.
For example, people have argued that since the GPL discriminates
it's a non-free license.

Discrimination alone isn't sufficient to make a license non-free.

There has to be something about using the software freely that the
license discriminates against for discrimination to make the software
