I had a crazy idea :

Lets say that you want to create a GNU only 
webservice, that can only be accessed from other GNU

This is really the question of security, lets say that
the licence says that you can only use it via a secure
interface and you are not free to remove it.

Then the secure interface only allows connections from
registered GNU software under the same licence!

That would allow you to disallow the usage of the
software via the network from non-free software, once
you are on the machine, the normal linkage rules

What do you think?
