Tim O'Reilly responds to Web 2.0 service mark brouhaha

Web 2.0Last week a bit of a storm sprung up when CMP, which runs O'Reilly's Web 2.0 Conference, sent a cease-and-desist to Irish nonprofit IT@Cork regarding the naming of their half-day Web 2.0 conference. At the time, Tim O'Reilly himself was on vacation and O'Reilly's VP of Corporate Communications responded at O'Reilly Radar, but many were unsatisfied with her response. Now that Tim is back on the grid, he's posted his own response in an attempt to clarify O'Reilly's side of the issue. Despite indulging in a bit of finger-pointing, I think Tim's post is pretty well-reasoned and it's worth a read.
