In the opensource world, who you are means nothing.  Check out the link
Tim pointed out, www.opensource.org and read the open source definition,
which defines what a license must do and not do to be open source, and
you'll also find a list (with the psl included) of one's that meet this

And then, if you guys are that big you've probably got a legal dept, so
take one of those guys out to lunch and ask him to look at it (it's only
a page or two), and see what he thinks.
