harold… don’t be simplistic. That is the same argument Tom Hoffman made on elearnspace asking how George would feel if someone else made an elearnspace blog.
1. the expression ‘elearnspace’ or ‘edtechtalk’ has not gone into common usage. (and i agree with george, if someone wants to use it, there’s really not much i can or would want to do about it)
2. a more relevant example would be if someone approached o’reilley about his usage of the word ‘web’ in his conference title.
3. They trademarked it 3 years ago, and then allowed it to go into common usage and are NOW staking their claim around the world, AFTER people have started using it. see this post http://battellemedia.com/archives/002596.php#comment_28742
