Wouldn't it be more correct to say that it only creates voluntary moral obligations?
Isn't that an oxymoron ?
I think that 'obligation' is not the right concept to look at. Typically no use of
software, be it Free or proprietary, creates obligations. As far as usage goes,
'restriction' would be a more meaningful concept to look at.
Obligations come into play when you start thinking about distributing Free software.
Just to be a bit more precise...
PS: By the way, what happened to the formatting ? It is very hard to figure out
what text is new and what is citation (and from whom), looking at any of these
