The ultimate goal of the GPL is the abolishment of IP rights. In Marxist terms i think that until the time when copyright/IP is abolished, any license other than the GPL would be counter-revolutionary, since any of them does not help enlarge the free software pool, but it helps enlarge the PD/IP pool. I would count even the BSD license as counter-revolutionary since it allows for source to be closed up again
