Loic presented a license that he said that it wasn't a free software
license because it demanded that any changed code would have its
copyright given back to a determined entity. My point was that that
statement was incorrect, because that, in fact, doesn't reduce the user

As an example I used the GNU project that requires handling copyright to
the FSF for all translations and (as I learnt) some of the programs.
AFAICS this kind of requirement doesn't limit the freedom in the
software, so the Collaborative Virtual Workspace License (CVW) is,
indeed, a free software license.
