Another excellent reason why laws for software need rewriting

I had thought everyone would have automatically realised this, but it 
seems not. This IS globalisation and it doesn't just happen to 

If all software had to mandatorily come with source, it would be very 
hard to sell much of a product which ripped off someone else's code. 
This would force people to spread the profit to those who wrote it 
which IMHO is only fair.
