LXer: Blackboard patent pledge greeted with mixed reactions

Published at LXer:

Blackboard, one of the major providers of educational content management systems, has pledged not to assert its patents against open source elearning projects and companies. The pledge also covers so-called "home-grown" learning systems -- ones developed in-house by educational institutions. However, the pledge includes open source solutions only so long as they are not bundled with proprietary software, which has received mixed reactions, with many open source projects acknowledging the spirit of the gesture while expressing skepticism about the results.
