The funny thing is that quite a few companies enjoy picking up BSD-licensed 
software, include it in their 
software and proceed to act as if it was written by the company itself. That is 
also the case with GPL 
software but thankfully, as soon as the jig is up, the courts quickly force the 
offending companies to 
respect their copyright agreement.

So no, you got it backwards.
