The owners of ITIL, the UK Government Cabinet Office, have gone out to tender with a 'joint venture'.
The alarm bells are starting to ring. One of the fundamental strengths of ITIL is that it is non-proprietary, although a few questions were raised with the appointment of APMG, who not only manage the Accreditation Scheme but are also an ITIL training organization in the market place.
The tender document, which is detailed below states that the 'joint venture company will develop and exploit the Intellectual Property'.
The tender is not giving much more away until a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is signed.

Quite the contrary, those of us who respect copyright and intellectual property, work within the legal confines. The 'free ITIL' (Free Willy?) campaign, and other attempts to free ITIL are ridiculous in their attempts to basically mug an owner of its property on what seems to be the basis its licensed use is abused by so many it should be freely available....
