I re-stumbled upon what I think does the worst disservice to both
Debian and the FSF. The company I work for enabled nonfree on some
machines solely for the purposes of getting GNU Emacs documentation.
I'm guessing many other have done this as well.
I do not believe the Wikipedia modifications to the license have any
effect on this .
I would argue that the attribution clause (in
CC-Attribution-ShareAlike and the like) and the FSF website should
have the affect desired, in spreading the core principles of free
