Blackboard Accuses Desire2Learn of Contempt

Andy Guess, Inside Higher Ed, Jun 18, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

As expected, Blackboard has rejected Desire2Learn's fix of its system to comply with the judge's ruling in the Blackboard patent case, claiming that the fix is just cosmetic and doesn't satisfy the verdict at all. Of course, it would have been nice had Blackboard examined the fix before the expiration of the period for making the change, but they didn't do that. Not that Blackboard is interested in the facts of the matter; they will continue no mater what. "Blackboard's chief legal officer, Matthew Small, said that if the judge doesn't find Desire2Learn in contempt of the injunction, litigation would still continue." Barry Dahl also comments.
