    You are correct. OpenwebOS may actually BE patented (I don't know) but this would be to protect it from some naughty corporation taking it and calling it theirs or filing a patent for something similar. I think there is actually a group that patents OSS as protection for development. Android is open source, so you'd think, problem free. But the majority of development is done by Google, so they effectively control it and possibly could take it proprietary if they wanted - hence Tizen.

    However, webOS - the closed version - is patented and trademarked. All that Preware is running on a proprietary system and sometimes accessing things that wouldn't be allowed in the official catalogue. This is why it's free and 'at your own risk'. Profiting from a closed source could lead to legal issues. WebOS-Internals concern over capitalisation is to avoid any confusion.

    But Preware 2 on OpenwebOS would be a different thing...
