E-CME alert: Patent issues

E-CME providers, check out this article: Who invented e-learning computing? (from CNN). A snip:

    Blackboard Inc. has been awarded a patent establishing its claims to some of the basic features of the software that powers online education.

    The patent, awarded to the Washington, D.C.-based company in January but announced last month, has prompted an angry backlash from the academic computing community.

Could this have an impact on e-CME, which is finally starting to gain some traction, according to the latest ACCME Data Report?

Many thanks to my anonymous reader who doesn't want to get sued by the company for the pointer!
