Thomson sues makers of Zotero

leave a comment

I’m following this story with interest: Thomson Reuters (makers of RefWorks-competitor software EndNote) are suing the George Mason University (VA, USA), makers of the open-source Firefox reference-management tool Zotero, alleging that the latest (beta) version of Zotero makes illegal use of EndNote’s proprietary citation style formatting files.

Here’s the story search on Google News…

Some people (and some other people) reckon Thomson have got it wrong (warning: expect less-than polite language at the end of these links!).
