The intended goal of the BSD license was to allow UCB students to create companies based upon the (good) work they started at university, while allowing other universities to freely use the software.

IMHO it is the best of both world, as collaboration between closed and open source developers increase standardization. If SSH is, today, the de-facto standard for remote logins, it is because we have a good, BSD-licensed implementation. It was the same for TCP/IP too, etc.
