That is actually a good point. There are lots of cases where someone
distributes closed source programs of other people and attributes it
wrongly. Sometimes with branding changes and/or added malware. The only
thing that closing the source might do is to reduce 'code butchering'.
It would also prevent people from learning from the code and from
reusing it in a sensible way.
