But this is what (unfortunately) the *laws* do... 
So we should fight all freedom limitations without difference!
So figthing just for freedom in software code is not enough!
So, in my opinion, people (i.e. activists) and orgs (i.e. FSF) should
fight for all digital (and not) freedoms, not only for software...

That is true. They know this and make laws about "intellectual works"
and "intellectual property" in general, mixing all... 

Indeed, these copyright and patents laws are just legal tricks to
artificially introduce shortage in non-material goods, which are
unlimited, in order to threat them as if they were limited material

By this way, they want to apply private "intellectual property" to all
digital stuffs, intellectual works, science, knownoledge, ideas,
opinions, ecc... They are the "pirate" who want to stole commons goods
to people, in order to make them private and have eternal monetary
incomes from this...

So, THIS is the point: just fight copyrigh and patents, any time, any
type, any case.

Imagine? We already have OGM and a lot more...

The same! If you admit restrictions for non-material stuff like
artworks, why do not you might admit rescrictions for non-material
stuff vegetable growing tecnics? From the point of view of capitalism
they are exactly the same: just commodityes on which to make some
