This makes no sense, DiBona is not being clear enough, opening doors
for your venom spit.

In your quote, Ricard is talking about Google Earth as the non-Free
Software program. Every non-Free Software program is designed to
restrict freedom, it clearly says so in their license.

That's completely beside the point of wanting or not the collection
of images. IMNSHO, sattelite photos of *our* planet have no business
being owned by TerraMetrics, the owners of Google Maps' imagery.
