This must be a joke, misunderstanding or a lawyer gone AWOL…
They are asserting that he is not allowed to use the term “web2.0” in his does-what-it-says-on-the-tin “IT@Cork Web 2.0 half day Conference” named event.
“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 (sic) use of the term “Web 2.0? is a “flagrant violation” of their trademark rights!”
I simply can’t believe O’Reilly are doing this, and I almost feel like the need to check my calendar to confirm it’s not April 1st!
