,----[ Quote ]
| I am very happpy to tell you that the Software Freedom Law Center
| has filed a reexamination request with the USPTO regarding
| Blackboard's eLearning patent.


Earlier I noticed the following:

	The Market's 10 Best Stocks

,----[ Quote ]
| Now, how many investors are searching for market-thumping
| returns among the Microsofts and ExxonMobils of the world?
| Forty and 20 analysts follow each of those stocks, respectively.
| But these companies can't beat the market -- they are the market!
|           ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
|        ( Antitrust? Halllo???)
| So if you want to find the 10 best stocks of the next 10
| years, you need to start small -- as in small caps. These are
| exactly the types of companies we're following at Motley Fool
| Hidden Gems. We don't care about Microsoft. Instead, we follow
| Blackboard, an $800 million software firm that supplies 2,225
| educational institutions and has 90% product renewal rates.


There are connections between Blackboard and Microsoft. Blackboard are
patent trolls who try to stop the inevitable win by Open Source rivals
such as Moodle.
