I appreciate the sentiment and passion here, but it is just a marketing slogan, I don't think anyone really believes this challenges who 'owns' spatial science.
(I don't personally think it is a very good slogan either, since I would like my GIS to also address 'when' and 'what', and ideally sometime soon also 'how' and 'why'.)
I think the best way to address this kind of challenge is to come up with a better tag line.
OSGeo: 'where science is free' perhaps ;-)
