I am working in a small company and we work with opensource. I think it 
is not only on the behalf ot the "big" companies, but also what we call 
"small business" in europe could win from opensource.
Said that we know we are in charge to the community and we try to gave 
back what we can to let the whole thing work.

I do have no problems to let my comany sign (and my company would) a 
CCLA as long as I promise I do not develop a opensource application in 
competition to what we do here.
But there is so much base-work and enhancements to do to have no risk to 
cross the lines here.

What I would like to say is: Any company who knows how valuable all the 
opensource work is would sign a CCLA.
