I believe he means "free" as in "freedom" or "liberty".

And not "free" as in "free of charge" or "gratis".... as you are using the word.

The words look and are spelled the same but they have very very
different meanings.

Anything that is patent encumbered is NOT free as in "freedom" or
"liberty".

But if you can get people to voluntarily pay for it, there's nothing
that goes against the concept of "freedom" to do that.


See ya
