We often see this type of statement and things like "The GPL Is restrictive"

MY growing view is that the attacks on FLOSS (starting with the SCO case it 
appears )will come based upon the freedom of contrcat enshrined int he 
emaning of liberty in the US Constitutionand he fact that the GPL is 
"restrictive" and thus contrary to this liberty and anti competetive (a la 
anti Trust law).

Any thoughts on this out there?
