Uh, that is exactly the reason I've joined this discussion.

And I think that is the reason most people here are discussing this
topic as well.

I've got nothing against big Silicon Valley companies, but the main
issue is that third-party closed plugins simply can't coincide with
the GPL unless
you somehow break the GPL, and that is something I would like to see changed.

If I somehow gave you some other impression please excuse me.
