Yes it's right! he never means FOSS, however his thinking is based on it
about operating system terms for Parabola and Arch projects. In "FLOSS
and FOSS" article from says: "“Free and Open Source Software” is
misleading in another way: it suggests that “free and open source” names
a single point of view, rather than mentioning two different ones. This
conceptualization of the field is an obstacle to understanding the fact
that free software and open source are different political positions
that disagree fundamentally."

ok, you are right, but what about artwork that does not allow derivative
works and commercialization?

Even somebody can make the modifying and re-using of images, videos and
sounds (eg. somebody can modify a image colour, merge 2 videos, change
and modify the sound or add/merge parts that forms parts from another
projects (that are allowed through the license). Therefore, Free
Cultural Works is very important for the freedom. i don't mean if any
artwork needs source code but we could modify, re-use, redistribute and
sell them under our freedom principles.
