I didn't get the chance to download the links given yet.
Does this directive restrict the use of copyleft,
or does it just make non-free more draconian?

If it just makes non-free nastier than it already is,
then it may ironically help freesoftware.
If people no longer dare to ignore copyright, 
then they will value copyleft more.

Software patent promotion would be a serious threat to freesoftware.
