They're deluding themselves.
The vast majority of ideas aren't worth stealing.
If they are worth stealing, you don't need the source code to
You can figure out the ideas behind almost all software by
running the program for 30 seconds (or just by reading a
description of what it's supposed to do).
Even sophisticated and intricate algorithms and protocols can be
reverse-engineered with or without the source code. Having the
source code often doesn't even help very much.
