I agree with you only to an extent and I disagree as well. I think if you use something that is open source, then you should not fear or feel bad about open sourcing your code and let others use it as well if the library or code owner requires to build an open community.

In case, you own a proprietary code base and do not wish to share the code, then purchase a license. Mostly the same library under GPL comes with a paid license too, and you get to use the library without having to open source the codebase. Programmers need to pay the bills as well. So it is merely whether the organization wants to "not" pay a thing, or whether they really wanted something open source.

But mainly, I consider MIT based projects and if I have to do the same, I publish under the same licensing.
