YES, that's the entire POINT. We LIMIT the freedom of murderers, rapists etc. to do murder, rape etc. IN ORDER TO GUARANTEE FREEDOM to other people. I've been telling this to you since 16 pages ago or something.
The same way the GPL limits the freedom of people who would take advantage of the codebase, IN ORDER TO GUARANTEE FREEDOM to the user. It's the exactly same thing.
A freedom doesn't stop being a freedom because we don't grant that freedom. It's still a freedom, it's just a freedom people don't have. If people stop having freedom of speech, if we tomorrow get a law that removes the freedom of speech, that doesn't make freedom of speech itself any less a freedom, now does it? It will just be a freedom that we currently don't have.
Once more, with feeling: A cheeseburger doesn't stop being a cheeseburger just because you're starving.
