Submitted by
Sargun Dhillon
Sargun Dhillon writes "William Hurley, or better known as whurley, from BMC software writes about a town much like the open source world where no one gives back. As the open source community is exploding in size it is being taken advantage of some.

This is only one more bump that OSS must pass over."
