In fact, this is the very essence of open source. A licence which prevents a company's contribution being viewed the same as an individual's is most certainly (rightly or wrongly) not an open source one. Open source is there to get contributions for as many directions as possible - it is totally absurd to suggest that a company paying for contributions to an open source project is against the spirit, which couldn't be further from the truth.
