OLPC sued for patent infringement in Nigeria



Hi,

The peril of patents on software...

http://lwn.net/Articles/260053/

"A company called Lagos Analysis Corporation has sent out a press release announcing a patent infringement lawsuit against the One Laptop Per Child project. "The patent infringement lawsuit was filed on November 22nd, 2007 as a result of OLPC's willful infringement of LANCOR's Nigeria Registered Design Patent #RD8489 and illegal reverse engineering of its keyboard driver source codes for use in the XO Laptops." The patent text is hard to find, but it seems to relate to the design of keyboards which facilitate the typing of text in multiple languages."
