The Spinmeisters

You gotta love the quotes in Campus Technology's coverage of the federal appellate court's decision in favor of Desire2Learn.

From Blackboard's Matthew Small:
"...we believe they are infringing multiple patents of ours, and we will continue to pursue what we believe is a fair result in the appropriate venues. This is really just a blip in the overall intellectual property dispute between Blackboard and Desire2Learn. I don't think it changes their prospects as a company one bit."

And from D2L's John Baker:
"It is a definitive win. We are celebrating this victory for Desire2Learn and education as a whole. We are incredibly appreciative of the support we have received from the educational community. We look forward to the day that Blackboard will return the judgment paid."
