LXer: Blackboard eLearning patent to be re-examined

Published at LXer:

The Software Freedom Law Center's (SFLC) request for a re-examination of Blackboard's patent for elearning systems has been granted by the US Patent and Trademark Office. Another request for re-examination by Desire2Learn is also pending. Speaking for the SFLC, Richard Fontana expresses optimism that these requests will either overturn the patent claim or else narrow it to the point that it no longer poses a threat to free software learning systems.
