You are right, I guess we need a policy to manage Open Source work in Companies' hours.

That's a great point that I didn't even touch on in this post - but I know that there are some companies that encourage and quantify the open source contributions made by their employees. I think those companies are the exception. But they do exist. And if you had that kinda policy in place, it would encourage more of your own coders to avoid copying-and-pasting "utility" code from one project to another.
