There's several open-source virus scanning projects. Issue is the signature development. With AV software, the code is NOT the big expense. It's the hundreds of researchers, operation centers, and constant 24/7/365 testing of signatures. It's a human-intensive process.

Antivirus software is losing its significance. The motivation behind malware is now very different. While I don't recommend doing away with it, you're better off adding lots of other security layers to your system.
