Hi all, 

Let’s go back to the legal issues. ESRI provides its clear guidelines about how to use its products name, web link and logo here: http://www.esri.com/legal/weblink-logoagreement. Please read through the license agreement. I don’t think we can meet all the terms and conditions provided by ESRI.

It's different degrees of annoyance. I guess a brand-less and
link-less list of names of proprietary products would not be too
"offensive" for me (assuming spam filtering lets it pass) but I'd
still prefer an hidden keyword. Something that you never see written
but is recognized by the search engine to give you back a similar
software: you search for <proprietary> you get <free>.

The "like Photoshop, only better" motto I like even when it contains
the name because it explicitly bashes it :)
