O’Reilly – Ireland is not part of the US

by in Techie :: Techno ::

I am rather amused and mildly shocked by O'Reilly's threats against IT @ Cork (of which we are members).
Of course they are now back peddling madly, but I still think it's incredibly heavy handed and ill advised. Unless the trademark was registered in the EU it would have no bearing on Ireland anyway, so I would love to know what they had applied for.

  2. From Keith Gaughan:

    The fact that both Ireland and the US are signatories of the Madrid Protocol means that even if it’s not registered here, it still valid here.
    That said, it’s still crap.
