Moulinneuf: if someone use BSD-licensed code in a closed source program, the developers do not lose anything (information is duplicated but not destroyed). Instead, they can win big (information is created). The user often contributes back bug reports (or fixes) or even whole new subsystems (e.g. the netgraph framework).
