<product> (Note: One unhyphenated word with initial capital; contrast
meta data) A word coined by Jack E. Myers to represent current and future lines
of products implementing the concepts of his MetaModel, and also to designate
his company The Metadata Company that would develop and market those products.
A data and publication search performed when Myers coined the term, early in the
summer of 1969, did not discover any use either of the word "metadata" or "meta
data". Myers used the term in a 1973 product brochure and it is an Incontestable
registered U.S. Trademark.
