I'm not questionning the intent, I observe an interesting legal feature that
I believe people should be aware of.

Don't you think that is a bit over-paranoid? I mean Oracle is on a get out
strategy. If OOo was so valuable how come they didn't actually sell it off
to someone like IBM for real dollars? To a corporate something has value if
they see potential to make money out of it and neither Sun nor Oracle really
did. Ok, Oracle will still own the copyright but in effect the Apache
license means its pretty much a token.  I should think there is probably
broader commercial or legal reason for Oracle to hold on to the copyright
such as tax relief or just in case it *might* somehow become valuable.
