You can argue about which is the "best" license to use (I don't
personally like the GPL and LGPL, and don't use them on my creations),
but Steve's description that its free status depends on what you're
doing with it implies a fairly major violation of the principles of
software freedom, which I would expect *all* the popular open-source
licenses to be correct on.
