I think you're confused about what the GNU copyleft is if you think this
is a coherent statement. The GNU copyleft _exactly_ "ensures the terms
of the license may not be restricted in copies or derivations", I don't
know what else you think it "restricts uses". The problem is that this
prevents a work (or portions thereof) covered by the license from being
incorporated in a larger work that has components under restrictive
licenses (such as commercial UNIX derivatives)
