If copyleft were decoupled from copyright -- and I don't have a clue of
how difficult that would be -- copyleft advocacy would be freed from
considerations on copyright, an uncomfortable but unavoidable travel
companion for many. When RMS invented copyleft, it remained to be seen
what its value for society would be. Now that it's proven, I think the
case could become more compelling for lawmakers.
