| importance of trademarks for open source.

| Before I even start this post I am going to repeat our view 
| that Oracle is well aware that it has little to gain from 
| killing off MySQL and that we expect MySQL to become the 
| scale-out database for non-transactional web applications and 
| to compete with SQL Server in departmental deployments.

| Q. This is all very theoretical.
| A. Yes it is, but it highlights the importance of thinking 
| through the long-term implications of licensing and copyright 
| assignment. If you donât want to end up in the situation 
| faced by Monty Program, donât go GPL with full copyright 
| assignment.



U.C. Berkeley Creating Large-Scale Open Source Software Project

,----[ Quote ]
| Researchers and developers at the University of California, Berkeley are
| working on open source software to help distribute audio and video files of
| classroom lectures to media services like iTunes and YouTube. The university
| already publishes full-length videos of classroom sessions on YouTube, but
| recording, editing, and posting these videos is an costly undertaking. Now,
| new grant money will pay those expenses and help expand video distribution
| worldwide.



UC Berkeley first to post full lectures to YouTube

,----[ Quote ]
| Berkeley said it will continue to expand the offering. The topics of study
| found on YouTube included chemistry, physics, biology and even a lecture on
| search-engine technology given in 2005 by Google cofounder Sergey Brin.
