Rather than ask the same question over and over, you might consider
visiting the gnu website. They provide all the details you're looking
for. A good place to start is Richard Stallman's 'Free Software, Free
Society', where he explains his original motivations and goals for
Free Software in general, and the GPL in particular. It's available to
browse on-line or to download, or you can even buy a hardcopy if you
so wish. You should find it in the documentation section.
