Things have been a bit quiet around here, but there’ve been two developments that I thought I’d share.
First, we’ve now got a date for meeting the Royal Mail — we’ll be off to see them on Monday (2009-11-23). The meeting’s with one of their senior customer relationship managers, so I’m not sure quite what to expect, but it’s great that they’ve agreed to meet and we’re hopeful. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Second, the ever-marvellous Heather Brooke of Your Right To Know sent the Royal Mail a FoI request last month asking about other instances where legal action has been taken for intellectual property infringements. The response has just come back and reveals that two other companies — Situation Publishing (aka: The Register) and Wikia Inc were sent legal threats at the same time as us. Very interesting.
We’ve no idea why, and if anyone has any inside knowledge or has heard a scurrilous rumour that might shed some light, please let us know!
