The role of license type in digital library software suitability

I just read a blog article about yet another university digital services department releasing a new open source digital library system. Developing OSS is quite en vogue these days, which makes me stop to wonder why. Is it that every current system just so poorly addresses the market’s needs that a new direction is needed? Or is it something else? Maybe it’s an altruistic act of creating something to freely give to the community, a legacy as such?
