After attempting to compromise with Adobe on the issue the author has now been asked to change the name of his product. And so he has. FlashObject is now called SWFObject. I don't pretend to understand all the legal details regarding these types of issues, but it is definitely unfortunate that we [apparently] cannot have projects and products with the name "Flash" in them. Go Adobe. To read the author's take on this click on over to his blog post on the matter.
