Well, that's assuming your goal is to get everyone to use free software.
But software freedom is only part of the picture.
IMO "protocol freedom" (is this a thing already?) is a more important problem lately.
- gmail not wanting to accept email from you (and the fact that this is a problem for you, but not for google)
- being forced to use a WHATWG compliant browser, where WHATWG defines RCEs to be a feature
- middleboxes that block everything except HTTP and TLS<1.3

That's a stated goal of the software freedom movement. It's a subset of the more ambitious goal to create a world free of proprietary software.

I agree it's an issue, and thanks for the examples. I disagree that it's more important than software freedom. I'm not sure it's even as important.
I'm not saying it's a more important issue in general, it's just that we're doing relatively well on the software freedom front, but we're losing a lot on the "protocol freedom" front, so it needs more attention these days.
