Open Source getting tough on Open Source label!

The Open Source Initiative is getting tough on any vendors who claim to be open source even if not using a license approved by the OSI. OSI president Michael Tiemann writes: "Enough is enough. Open Source has grown up. Now it is time for us to stand up. I believe that when we do, the vendors who ignore our norms will suddenly recognize that they really do need to make a choice: to label their software correctly and honestly, or to license it with an OSI-approved license that matches their open source label."
There is also a lively discussion on the subject at SlashDot.
