I think the idea of inquiring about the EFF licences to be a good one
but I hardly think this email is well written. Are you a native
speaker of English? The tone of the email sounds accusatory and

Perhaps something like

Why are most/all software of EFF licensed under the GPL? The GPL's
restrictions preclude a large number of users from freely using the
software. For example the FreeBSD Project is actively phasing out the
use of GPL like restrictions and Google prefers the use the 2-BSD
license.  Would it be possible to change the license of __(specific
software)__ to a BSD-like (or even the Apache license)?

Or something of a similar nature would be a nicer way to put it.
