That's mine, and mine only

HP has sued Acer for breaching five of its patents on things such as read/write optical drives, power management in notebooks, and digital bus arrangement.

The complaint was filed in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas and will try to block Acer from selling computers in the US.

HP has been getting increasingly litigious over its patents particularly when they are breached by rivals. Last year, it settled a similar lawsuit with Gateway.
