GIMP: If the development process is totally open, nothing gets done. What needs to be open is the fruits of the development process. If people think they can do better, they can take the code and fork it. And if someone comes along and asks for something to do, and there isn't anything, it's not the project team's responsibility to make something up.
ICONS: Copying not immoral much less illegal, but antisocial and ill mannered. Like, there's nothing to stop you farting in a lift, but considerate people try not to.
