There are two sides to every story.  A good link to some discussion of pro-GPL versus pro-BSD can be found here:
http://news.slashdot.org/story/99/06/23/1313224/featuregpl-vs-bsd

I am sure you can find many other links that show similar discussions about why someone might dislike using the GPL.  A good summary, done by an anonymous coward (at the previously mentioned link) is below:
The GPL license is conducive to liberating software.
The BSD license is conducive to liberating people.
With the GPL license, the software maintains more of the freedom than the programmers who work on it.
With the BSD licenses, the programmers maintain more of the freedom with what they are allowed to do with derivative code.

I am not a lawyer and this is not legal advice.
