    * The freedom to study how the program works, and adapt it to your
needs (freedom 1).

If we do not judge the free-ness of a software by its license, there
are scenarios who can go into endless arguments. Here are two of them:

1. If a country bans Linux, is it still free (since her citizens
cannot copy it) for everyone?

2. The complete source code of the firmwares in Linux is not
available, they exist as a series of numbers. Is it free for everyone?
