Submission + - FSF's Moglen gives O'Reilly a hard time on Web 2 (theregister.co.uk)

An anonymous reader writes: Seems not everyone is wowed Tim O'Reilly's Web 2.0 vision (all rights reserved, registered trademark, patent pending). The Register provides commentary on a recent discussion at an O'Reilly conference:

"O'Reilly invited Free Software Foundation lawyer Eben Moglen to participate in a discussion about "licensing in the Web 2.0 era" at this week's OSCON. The conference organizers did their best to fix the conversation. Even though everyone laughs at O'Reilly's Web 2.0 moniker to his face, the conference promoter still takes the phrase very seriously and expects others to do the same. Moglen declined the offer."

Not very enlightening, but great fun to read.

Submission + - Eben Moglen says Tim O'Reilly is 'frivolous'

lisah writes: When Eben Moglen took the stage at OSCON today, things heated up rather quickly. According to reports, 'At the O'Reilly Open Source Convention, Eben Moglen threw down the gauntlet to O'Reilly founder and CEO Tim O'Reilly. Saying that O'Reilly had spent ten years making money and building the O'Reilly name, Moglen invited O'Reilly to stop being "frivolous" and to join the conversation about software freedom.'
