   1. It's immoral to profit off of your own work *by restricting the
   freedom of the user through proprietary license*, according to FSF

No, it is simply immoral to restrict computer users through non-free
software licenses.  Making a profit doesn't come into the picture.

   2. It's illegal to relicense GPL-licensed software of others under
   proprietary terms to third parties, by the terms of the GPL and The
   Law. (Not to mention it's also immoral under (1) as well w/ FSF
   morals. And also because you break the law doing it and you're
   supposed to follow the law.)

No, it is perfecly legal to do so if you are the copyright holder.

   Is that all right?
