thanks of explanation. i believed that the rules of GPL affects everyone 
including the programmer who wrote the code.

This is good as with programs that doesn't have huge list of authors, it 
is still possible to get away from GPL.

Would be nice to see someday that term "Free software" will only mean free 
software, not "free software but..."
