Another reason to drop EndNote? EndNote sues Zotero & loses @Downes

A Virginia Circuit Court judge dismissed a lawsuit this morning against George Mason University’s Center for History and New Media.

Thomson Reuters Inc. had sued the university in a Virginia court in September for at least $10-million in damages, claiming that Zotero, a free software tool created by the university, made improper use of the company’s EndNote citation software.

Thank you to Stephen Downes for drawing attention to this story. Not sure what the implications may be, yet, but comments and sidebars draw parallels with Blackboard.
