I think this is a good move. But from an enforcement perspective, how realistic is it to prevent someone like Amazon from offering a clone service (at least for backend components) and claiming they wrote it from scratch? Is there any way to force them to reveal the source for a particular service?

I mean.. you think any major provider like Amazon is going to just blatantly rip it off and sell it saying "We created this!"

That's just not going to happen.
