This analogy breaks down, however, in that the owners of the house did not already specifically choose to post the details of their lock choice to a public forum and explicitally grant the right for everybody to read and redistribute it freely. Furthermore, this search engine does not index users of code, only the original code itself. So a better analogy would have been that which applies to the lock makers, not the home-owners who employ them.
