Hardly. The belief is that software should not be subject to copyright. GPL is
the legal judo to try to get to that state where the law has not changed.

The only thing lost were software to be made not subject to copyright would be
the ability to require source code. I think I recall RMS writing to the
effect that without copyright, the benefit of hiding source would go away for
most? software.

(The above really only holds where software is also not subject to patent
protection as well I think.)

In essence it depends on copyright to undo copyright effects. Without
copyright law, copyright law would have no negative effects to undo.

all the best,
