Could you provide some more details about this?  Statements from those
companies about what they care about exactly, or open source policies that
you can point at?  I ask because this is contrary to my own personal
experience where commercial users care about the top-line license
(including not wanting to use licenses that we consider free) but do not
care about the work that Debian does beyond that and routinely use
software based on the declared upstream license on GitHub without giving
it a second though.  However, my personal experience is limited, and I'd
be happy to be educated!
