I am making this post to give some “equal weighting” to the level of news coverage, that my previous post on the Worpress Trademark issue received.
This time around it is really good news
It looks like Sherman and the guys at Automattic have come to a level of understanding, and I am sure the newly designed sales letter I mentioned in my previous post helped somewhat.
One additional important factor may well have been the free videos now also available on the site.
Sherman has provided currently 15 “introduction to blogging” videos free of charge, and they are well worth watching for anyone new to the Worpdress blogging platform.
I would like to thank the following sites for their coverage (pinging them where possible so there is some closure)
First of all sites that picked up the initial situation
Sherman’s friends and customers who gave their support
I am sure there are many more posts out there, but not every one of them linked directly through to me, or I didn’t discover them during my initial research. If I missed your post, or simply forgot, I am happy to add you to the list.
I would like to stress that there wasn’t a “good guy” and a “bad guy” in this situation. It was more like 2 good guys realising that they weren’t the only good guys in town.
