Architecture of Participation

Tom Raftery:

"One of these events - the upcoming Web 2.0 half-day conference is the target of a cease and desist letter (below) from the legal team of O'Reilly publishers. Basically O'Reilly are claiming to have applied for a trademark for the term 'Web 2.0' and therefore IT@Cork can't use the term for its conference. Apparantly use of the term 'Web 2.0' is a 'flagrant violation' of their trademark"

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out, given Tim O'Reilly's OSS, copyright and patents leanings. The leter appears to have come from CMP and not ORA, although it mentions O'Reilly in passing. Raftery is one of Ireland's most popular tech bloggers - every web developer in the country will know about this by Friday lunchtime.
