Many of the commenters seem to missing the main points of the O'Reilly - Moglen contact, and actually make contradictory and stupid statements. The "license" IS what makes the software free to study, use, modify and distribute. No if, ands or buts - just ask an attorney versed in Patents/Trademarks and Copyright.
Eben is not attempting to take away Tim's freedoms, but is "inviting" him to join in a conversation that may extend "all" freedoms regarding software technology. And the commenter who explains why he "dislikes" Open Source/Free Software people as arrogant, is childish in his response, since those that believe in these freedoms should be strong-willed and enthusiastic, not wimpy and always caving in to the proprietary bullies while complaining all the while.
