OTTAWA -- Canadian software developer Corel has been hit with a lawsuit by Advanced Software, in California, that alleges word-processing patent infringement.

Ottawa-based Corel, which develops graphics and office-automation software, and the U.S. unit of Anglo-Dutch joint venture Reed Elsevier are being sued by Advanced Software, which said Corel's WordPerfect software Reed Elsevier's CompareRite infringes on its patent.
