My company (Roaring Penguin Software Inc.) made a reasonably large donation to the ClamAV development group a while back. I did not expect any "ROI" or quid-pro-quo. I also doubt there's any legal responsibility on Sourcefire's part related to these donations. It was pretty clear that all your donation bought you was a "thank you".
However, I will be quite upset if Sourcefire takes Clam proprietary and/or starts charging for timely virus updates, and I will request my money back (on moral, not legal, grounds.)
