Web 2.0 is bubbling up a storm in Ireland. For all the wrong reasons. It seems Tim O'reilly, who coined the concept web 2.0, seems to have caused some grievous offence, in suing not for profit organisation IT@Cork. Seems that O'reilly has sent a cease and desist order claiming web 2.0 for what the writer describes as :-
'Apparantly use of the term “Web 2.0″ is a “flagrant violation” of their trademark rights!'
I think the use of O'reilly's name may have also annoyed the lawyers. I think the best way to show our disfavour could be to write to Tim Blog as one blogger responding to this story wrote.
