“The Chronicle of Higher Education reports that Thomson Reuters’s lawsuit against George Mason University has been dismissed. Last fall the news organization had sued GMU’s Center for History and New Media over supposed violations of the EndNote licensing agreement by the Zotero project, hosted at the university. Zotero, a Firefox plug-in designed to help scholars store and organize their online research, has seen millions of downloads. Zotero project co-director Sean Takats’s announcement is pretty heartwarming. No comment as yet from Thomson Reuters.”
TR had alleged that the Zotero team at GMU reverse engineered EndNote in violation of the EULA.
