Pardon my slightly sexist language here, but:

IMO the best way to deter is this to have big balls! :) 

Write patches that are so amazingly rad and self-confident that not many
people would want to change them. And have balls when you encounter
those people who actually are able to improve on them. You can make sure
you profit from these ubermasters by releasing your patches as GPL, so
their balls make your balls bigger, too. :) Or alternatively you don't
even give a s**t about others having bigger balls and release as BSD,
stating by this that your balls are so big that you don't even care if a
mighty commercial company comes along, grabs your work and tries to make
money from it. Consider these companies as petty thieves. 

In this view, Miller has the biggest balls of dem all. :)
