OLPC programme faces patent infringement threat
According to an article in InformationWeek, Lagos Analysis Corp. is threatening patent infringement proceedings against the One Laptop Per Child programme, maintaining that the OLPC programme uses an XO laptop that falls within the scope of a patent it says it holds on "multilingual keyboards". Damages of $20 million and injunctive relief are sought. OLPC denies the claim.
