Thank you so much for all of this information!
My personal preference/instinct is to go voluntarily free software, regardless 
of what other companies or even cooperatives do.

What our email conversation revealed would be very useful in trying to persuade 
others if/when I need to do so 😄

At the same time, we probably need focused analysis for "Intellectual Property" 
(Now I understand there is even an objection to the term itself 😅), including 
software licensing, for the (worker) cooperatives because of their stated 
objective of advancing community interests.
