You are incorrect.  As copyright holder you can release code under
multiple licenses, for example mysql, they control of the copyright
for the project and thus release it under the gpl as well as a
commercial license, when someone contributes to them they require the
patch be given the copyright.   The only advantage of an apple like
license is it states some of this up front, where as an apache license
allows anyone to roll it into a closed program.   I tend to think the
gpl allows for the maximum amount of freedom for the users and if you
want to sell propitiatory licenses its easy if you are the copyright
holder.
