They are required to run the business in a profit seeking manner.
I think they can even go to jail... so "do the right thing" is not
an option for them.

You can trade patent licenses for other patent licenses.
You can trade a patent license for code or secrets.

Say, would Tux2 be useful on a DVD-RAM? Gee, can you think of
any other patent-holders and secret-holders that might have a
use for Tux2? Apple has some influence over video patents
used in QuickTime.
