I feel like most companies vastly overestimate the cost and risk of keeping their code public (even if not open source), and likewise vastly underestimate the cost of keeping it private.

How many organisations will have surreptitiously taken the (public, but not open source) GitLab Enterprise Edition source code and set it up for themselves, and how many of those represent actual lost income for GitLab?

Likewise, how much time and sanity has been sacrificed to setting up tools to point to private registries, poking through proxies, etc.?
