Two related bits of news in the world of libraries:
Innovative Interfaces (III) and SkyRiver, companies that had close ties, and who had joined together to sue OCLC in 2010, have merged.
Their first combined action? They dropped their lawsuit against OCLC.
Although I understand fully that lawsuits are rarely about the big issues, I had hoped that this one would spark a discussion about OCLC’s role in the world of libraries.
Marshall Breeding’s excellent repository of information about the case: SkyRiver vs. OCLC.
This is the way the lawsuit ends, not with a bang… but a merger….
