What the Sakai Announcement Means

Michael Feldstein, Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment, Apr 09, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Michael Feldstein reinterprets the Sakai announcement on the Blackboard patent. "The Sakai Foundation apparently believes that the odds are against the Blackboard patent surviving the challenge process in any enforceable form. I tend to agree." And "there is always a danger of having too many cooks in the legal kitchen." Fair enough. And I should also underline this as well: "D2L's behavior has been more altruistic than many people realize. A business that fights to invalidate a patent gives its competitors a free ride at considerable expense. Had D2L been less concerned with what's right for higher education in general, they almost certainly would have settled this out of court."
