Some people also consider the GPL "non-free" in that it's overly restrictive. Rewind 20 years and there were all the same useless opinions about the meanings of Open Source vs Free Software. No community is at risk, practices evolve with time to solve new needs that arise. Different actors will act within their best interests, as has been the case since beginning of life.
