Non sequitur.

Colin does not wish to release *his* software under the GPL, as is his
right.  He expresses no view about the use of the GPL by others, still
less about the others in question.

It's one thing to defend the GPL against people who would breach it.
It's another to "defend" it against people who wish to use something
