The text-cloud application, Wordle, has been taken off-line because of a trademark claim against the use of ‘Wordle’ on the website. I’m not a big fan of Wordle, but I know many people who make use of it, including some who use it in the classroom.
Jonathan Feinberg, the site’s owner, is seeking IPR legal advice and can be contacted <a href=“via his blog.
It’s ironic then to see the Patent and Trademark Group within the UK’s Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) using Wordle on it’s main web page. Perhaps Jonathan should talk to them?
