Thomson suing George Mason U over Zotero

Reuters Says George Mason University Is Handing Out Its Proprietary Software

"Thomson Reuters demands $10 million and an injunction to stop George Mason University from distributing its new Web browser application, Zotero software, an open-source format that allows users to convert Reuters' EndNote Software."

I wouldn't call that technically accurate  -- Zotero allows users to convert EndNote styles to use with Zotero.  Is that much different from OpenOffice's ability to read and convert Word .doc format?

They're also claiming that GMU reverse-engineered EndNote to create Zotero, which seems silly to me, given how differently the two programs operate.
