Thanks for asking for clarification.

Nobody will have exclusive rights to the results.  As with everything in 
OWASP, everything will be open.

The only "exclusivity" being discussed is the co-branding of the final 
report.  My firm has volunteered to take responsibility for the survey 
execution, analysis and production (although we will certainly welcome 
assistance from others within OWASP).  Because we're doing the heavy 
lifting, we want to co-brand the survey with our logo.  This is the same 
kind of agreement that we have with numerous other non-profits for whom 
we perform such surveys and is similar to Aspect's co-branding of some 
ESAPI products.

The results and report will be open and free, as always.
