I just think of all the wasted man-hours - probably centuries - of developers' time reimplementing existing software because the existing one isn't supported anymore and/or lacks some secondary features, and of course it can't be adapted or improved by anyone else.

Of course, that's more to do with it not being FOSS than just being copyrighted.
