    Trade Secrets and NonDisclosure Agreements are a plague on reusing valuable knowledge and tools.

    Some tools are shared, at a price that can just barely compete with open source, but mostly businesses Reinvent The Wheel because they dont want other businesses to benefit from what they've created for their private strategy to dominate a market.
