Surely if someone creating a closed source product wanted to use a reasonable amount of open source code there would be no real risk in it for them. If they dont give out the source with their product, then noone knows the code, and cant tell if it has been ripped off some OpenSource project being developed elsewhere... for all we know microsoft could have used linux code in the implementation of some of their software... <sarc>(unlikely considering how stable good ol windows is)</sarc>
