Ingram Micro is being sued for $5 million by a US reseller alleging fraud and misrepresentation. Frank Vanderputt, president of Vandy Corp, trading as Vandy-Micro in California, said the distributor knowingly sold upgrade packages of Novell Netware to his company for unregistered users. He said Ingram did not ask for licenses when selling the upgrades, according to a report on crn.com</>. Ingram said it was defending the case, which was filed on 16 July in the Superior Court in Orange County, California. The move came after Vandy himself was successfully sued for $4.6 million by Novell in 1997 for selling illegal NetWare upgrades. ®
