Discovery Communications says the Kindle electronic book readers from Amazon violate a patent.

Discovery claims the patent was registered in 2007. Discovery sued Amazon in Delaware yesterday.

Discovery spokeswoman Michelle Russo says the company is seeking "fair compensation" through damages, future royalty payments and legal fees but will not seek an injunction stopping sales of the Kindle.

An Amazon.com spokeswoman declined to comment.
