O'Reilly on Web 2.0 Service Mark Controversy

Tim O'Reilly Comments
Tim O'Reilly, in his blog, has posted a through response to flames in the blogosphere regarding the Web 2.0 Service Mark Controversy:

"Just to be clear, neither CMP or O'Reilly is claiming the right to all use of the term Web 2.0, as some of the posters assert. We just want to keep other conference companies from putting on events that trade on the name and concept that we created."

This is a long post and is quite detailed. It is worth taking the time to read in its entirety. Tim O'Reilly is a great guy who has been a champion of the open source and Web 2.0 evangelizing community. O'Reilly has created an ecosystem that fosters emerging technology. Tim O'Reilly has done a lot for us. He deserves to be heard out and given every benefit of of a doubt. I am not going to say more as it is all in his post! Please read it.
