Apple starts pruning

It's all over the web right now.
Apple has sent a Cease and Desist letter to a company called Podcast Ready in order to stop their use of the words "Podcast Ready" and "myPodder" because Apple claims those infringe on their trademarks.

The following links are a number of articles on the subject if you really want to dig into it.

UPDATE - 10/23/06
It looks like things are not as dire as I'd originally heard.
Apple is not attempting to take over "podcast". Rob over at Podcast 411 did some digging and came up with more accurate information about what Apple had actually done and it's not as bad as the rumormill originally implied.
I do not have a link to that show at this time but if you are really curious further reading on the subject should reveal what has actually occured.

Carry on.
