It's not free.  It costs time and effort.  In fact, it's of such value
that if I'm doing work for a company, and they wish to hold back the
results as proprietary, I charge them more.  The advertising value of
having my name on the code is worth something to me, and if they wish
to keep it from me, they have to pay for it.
