Million$Mission: Desire2Learn challenges Blackboard to drop lawsuits

Wow. I don't have much time to comment, but this is refreshing to see:

Desire2Learn Million$Mission - a letter to Blackboard's President and CEO

Also, on D2L's Patent Info blog:
Today, in a letter from John Baker to Blackboard President and CEO, Michael Chasen, we invited Blackboard to join us in putting education first and to drop needless litigation. During the last 3 years, we learned that the only winners in litigation are law firms. Education suffers.

Briefly, here is our proposal:

* Blackboard drop its recently-filed suit in a timely manner.
* In return, Desire2Learn will donate $1,000,000 to non-profit schools and educational organizations.
* Blackboard is invited to join us with its own donation.
* Up to 50% of the Desire2Learn donation will be directed toward schools in need in and around Washington, D.C., the home of Blackboard.
