While I agree with you in general, when you say "you are supposed to..."
you are restricting freedoms.

When you choose to write free software, you choose to let people use it
without quid pro quo[*].  If you don't like those terms, don't write Free

If a Fortune 500 company files a bug report, it's an opportunity to
present your consulting rates and contract terms :-)

[*] aside from agreeing to the GPL or equivalent, of course
