If you had read the article (last section), you would have seen that the open is not for "AIX 6 Open" but for "Open Beta". Which itself is refined as open for all their customers and not open for the world.

"The open beta program for AIX 6 will allow clients to download, install and run an early version of AIX 6 on suitable IBM systems in a non-production, non-supported mode."
