If you read the press release,

you will see towards the bottom:
"Open Source is a trademark of Apple Computer, Inc."

Like it or not, but now may be neccessary to come up with some of the
documents regarding the trademark, how it was handled initially etc.
Not only for Eric "Shoot Bill, get famous" Raymond, but in actual
legal confronation with Apple.
