Copyright is a obsolete restriction that software owners have stretched 
enormously to control computers and their users.  

Copyleft removes those restrictions from users by granting them the four 
software freedoms.  It is not a restriction on people, it is a restriction on 
publishers who would deny people their software freedom.  The "downside" of 
that is equivalent to the downsides of laws against slavery.
