In my experience, the researcher is usually happy to release the software as open source, but university management often interferes, because they hope to obtain money from licensing anything that turns out to be valuable. Some universities in the US treat software developed by researchers as a profit center.
One workaround could be to use GPLv3 and let the licensing people sell alternative licensing.
