I think there should be a law that says that if a company A takes over company B, and company B had open source projects, then part of the take over deal is that those projects are maintained at least at their current level. If they naturally die, then so be it, but company A shouldn't kill them off.

If you adopt a child, you have the responsibility of looking after it.

Just my 2c worth (actually, in Australia 5c is the smallest coin, so maybe thats my 5c worth) :-)
