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.
