Didn't that end with the appropriate office deciding that "Open Source"
is in itself too descriptive to enjoy trademark protection?

(In any case, the OSI definition is clearly what we mean by "open
source" on this list. People who insist of using the phrase with a
different meaning here deserve to get flamed).

Henning Makholm               "... not one has been remembered from the time
                         when the author studied freshman physics. Quite the
            contrary: he merely remembers that such and such is true, and to
          explain it he invents a demonstration at the moment it is needed."
