the point is that I cannot get support from all the compiler and interpreter authors if all the work they put into creating a parse tree can just be taken from them and used by a third party to create non free backends, right?
At least from the GCC.
It is not about changing the copyright, it is about keeping the gcc from being abused and turned into just a parse or just a code generator by a third party.
This is a limitation of use not of copyright.
It is an end user license agreement.
