Software libre is a matter of justice. We care about the movement
because we care about the justice for all. It's not the price that
brings justice but it's opportunity and freedom.

When we talk about copyleft, we're talking about giving all people the
same opportunity that we had. Copyleft makes sure that the software
remains free (as in freedom) so everybody will be able to run it,
redistribute it, study and modify it, and distribute their modifications
freely (as in freedom).

The main reason we care about copyleft is that we care about justice.
Copyleft makes justice possible.
