"The FSF and the Linux community should embrace closed source code"

So we see where this author is coming from. Thanks, but no thanks.

The rest of this paper is useless. It spends a bunch of time pointing
 out that the issue of whether separately loadable Linux kernel
modules fall under the GPL could be complicated, but it's most likely
that they don't. Um, OK. I think we all already know that. It's only
the FSF that thinks otherwise, with their expansive and wrong view of
what a derivative work is.

Your link addresses EC competition law. I have no working knowledge of
European law concerning these matters.
