I was contacted last week by Gareth Stack, who is a thoughtful recent graduate of Trinity College Dublin. Gareth had contributed to a User Generated Content based competition by Hot New Band the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. They asked their fans to send in videos of themselves singing along to one of their songs and then cut a selection of them together.
Ok, I promise that this will be my last post on this. I just wanted to outline the reality of the attempt by CMP, supported by their partners O'Reilly, to Trademark the use of the phrase 'Web 2. 0'.
