Hi Landon, What I feel it is also part of "Me-too" effect when such a event happens.
for eg. If a person from X company is using any of the "Open Source Intiative". His/Her collegue from their own or some other division/company find out they start there own endavour to get to it without any contribution or effort been returned or even collabrate with previous person. And other than that, also there come part of fear where in the company X may or may not be ready to reveal that output generate is from any utility of opensource and is as good as the output from Commerical software. They stake their creditablity to commerical product rather than opensource one. And just to beat the cost factor of the Commerical License they use Open Source. Rgds Abhay.
