In the what-why-how paradigm, code is the easy part of the “how”.

Historically, the value of code and coders has always been pretty low: commodity, lowest on the pay scale. Think that Open Source emerged as a model to have your code reviewed, fixed, and expanded by others for free – attracting valuable resources while underscoring the zero-value of the code being given away. Nowadays, if your Open Source code is complete and mature enough to represent a worthwhile solution, a controversy emerges on who can use your solution (vs. your Open Source code) and how are they allowed to use it. There is a clear movement in the industry to protect the solution part of the Open Source code via appropriate licensing. That's a fact of business life.
