NCR has filed a lawsuit against Netscape Communications accusing it of patent infringement.
A lawsuit filed in the US District Court of Wilmington accuses Netscape, bought by America Online earlier this year, of infringing upon several NCR software patents.
NCR listed nine patents which include methods for blocking unauthorised users from gaining access to networks, for identifying users, for the symbolic display of a network model and for the management of networks.
"NCR allocates considerable resources to the research and development of its products and business solutions, and we will aggressively assert our legal rights to protect our patent portfolio," NCR said in a statement today.
Netscape was unable to provide comment this afternoon.
Last year Wang Global lost a lawsuit it filed against Netscape and AOL over alleged patent infringement. Wang had claimed the two Internet companies had violated its patent for Videotex, used to store and retrieve digital information from a central server.
