This might backfire, as the homo economicus copyright holder can
probably continue fostering proprietary software by not providing
complete corresponding source code/files and detailed installation
instructions (be it through internet, physical media, or written offer),
thus passing the burden on interested parts of society to reverse
engineer it in order to understand what it does and to have a chance to
exercise the other freedoms.

I'm OK with the proposal made by FSF/GNU for a more gentle approach to
this (see [1]), but abolishing copyright and related terms outright with
no fallback in place to favor free/libre software movement — which also
includes provisions for other things not related to software, as
Stallman said — would be dangerous.
