Detalles de la patente de Blackboard

Muchos me han preguntado cuáles son los detalles de la patente de Blackbard que ha causado la conmoción que ha revolucionado la academia. Creo que Albert Essa en su blog lo explica de una manera sencilla y que tod@s podemos entender.

Curiosamente, Cornell University, donde nació Blackboard ha publicado un articulo - Suit Threatens Blackboard - que presenta su postura ante la polémica creada por la otorgación de la patente a Blackboard. A continuación algunas secciones:

" Only time will tell how Blackboard Inc., Cornell’s course management software provider, will fare on campus and throughout the country.

Amid a national legal debate over the scope of Blackboard’s “Internet-based education support system and methods” patent, Cornell technology staff members are moving forward with a preliminary assessment of whether Blackboard is the most appropriate software for Cornell professors and students.

Stressing that the “legal issues aren’t having an impact on our commitment to Blackboard in the short run,” Jim Lombardi of CIT admitted that the controversy, “probably accelerated our plans to take a look at what the options are to Blackboard.” "

De modo que tenemos que esperar los resultados de la reexaminación de la patente otorgada.
