Why doesn't Mediatek Publish their Kernel as Qualcomm does?

I have been trying to wrap my head around why Mediatek doesn’t openly publish their Kernel source code when it brings with it lots of advantages.
More ironical is that updates on MTK chipsets are almost never done or very poor. I believe making their source code open source would allow to create a larger developer community around them improving convenient updates on MTK based smartphones exactly like Qualcomm does with their snapdragon processors. Any ideas why?;And what do you think of this long trend ?
