Google Google have created a new HTTP-based protocol "SPDY" (pronounced "Speedy") to solve the problem of the client-server latency with HTTP. "We want to continue building on the web's tradition of experimentation and optimization, to further support the evolution of websites and browsers. So over the last few months, a few of us here at Google have been experimenting with new ways for web browsers and servers to speak to each other, resulting in a prototype web server and Google Chrome client with SPDY support."

The picture you try to paint suggests this bunch of students has the CHOICE to "support and use Google's platform in the future". They are students; I assume they can think for themselves and understand what marketing means.
I don't see any problem with Google's SoC and I am happy that a big company like Google tries to be open in at least some way and shares a lot of it's research and code. Even if it is their only motive to make a lot of money or to market itself: this is the case for every company. With Google we at least get something in return....
