A LAW SUIT started in a New York district court with Lenovo Singapore suing Clevo for infringing patents and a breach of contract.

Lenovo alleges that Taiwanese firm Clevo had a deal with IBM which it inherited in which it paid annual licence fees for products. But Clevo didn't shell out its $3 million 2006 payment, it's alleged, while it owes $41,000 plus for a portion of 2007.

It's alleged that Clevo is in breach of patents 5,548,763 and 5,513,359 by selling products called MobilNote and PortaNote products.

Lenovo wants its money, damages, and a declaration its patents have been breached. µ
