Is there money to be made by owning Ethers?

As a nontechnical sort of guy, I am wondering if owning Ethers is like providing funds to help develop the Linux operating system. After it is released, will a bunch of hacker dudes copy it and run it on a side chain or will another alt currency copy it and run it in competition. If it is open source, what makes it so it won't just be copied and run many times over? Where does the value lay in owning Ethers if Hacker B just copies it an sells his own currency and system calls it Ethuruem with Ethurs?
