      Perhaps the best way to beat these cash hounds at their own game
is to start using a strictly not-for-profit licensing on all released
advisories and proof-of-concept code which stipulates that for-profit
companies may not use said information in any way.

Allow me to recommend the use of a trivial encryption algorithm to protect 
exploits and advisories such that any for-profit company must circumvent 
it in order to use it for their own purposes.  Perhaps distribute advisories 
with the "do not copy" flag set on a .pdf. This would give DMCA protection 
to the copyright and allow researchers to sue if their "protection measures" 
are circumvented by companies looking to make money off of the research.
