Forbes talks about the Free Software Foundation and how they rigorously enforce the GPL - creating a disincentive for businesses to use it, since it demands all derivative work be open-source as well.

"For several months, officials from the Free Software Foundation have been quietly pushing Cisco and Broadcom for a resolution. According to Free Software Foundation Executive Director Bradley Kuhn, the foundation is demanding that Cisco and Broadcom either a) rip out all the Linux code in the router and use some other operating system, or b) make their code available to the entire world".

Interesting read.
