See, you're all making it far too complicated.
Here is the simple logical argument in 4 easy steps.

(2) Free speech allows individuals to create proprietary works.
(3) GNU-GPL does not allow proprietary works.
(4) GNU-GPL is not free as in free speech.
Unless someone can point to a logical fallacy in one of
those four steps, the argument stands.
for reference, logical fallacies are listed here:
