In good faith, I think that's a typo.  It actually reads:

  NOTE: Apple, the Apple logo, Macintosh, Mac OS, Power Macintosh and
  WebObjects are registered trademarks of Apple Computer, Inc. Open Source
  is a trademark of Apple Computer, Inc.

I don't see a reason why "Apple Computer, Inc." should be mentioned twice. 
It would be interesting to know what they intended to write there...
"Software in the Public Interest"?  I hope.
