Thomson-Reuters sues over Zotero

According to the Courthouse News Service, Thomson-Reuters is suing George Mason University over Zotero, the free Mozilla plug-in (developed at GMU) that lets you manage your research papers and particularly citations. They are demanding $10 million and an injunction to stop George Mason University from distributing Zotero because it allows users to convert Reuters' EndNote Software. The suit claims that GMU reverse engineered Reuters' EndNote software to create Zotero
Zotero is also one of the few apps you can use to format legal citations in Bluebook style.
