LG Attempting to Ban PS3 Sales in the US?


According to IGN, back in December, Sony went after LG for some apparent patent infringements on some of their mobile devices. LG has responded by claiming Sony infringed upon 8 of their patents; 4 for HDTVs and 4 for Blu-Ray devices (including the PS3).

“Official documents reveal that the infringements centre around “the reproduction of data recorded on Blu-ray Disc media.” “

    What’s in it for them?

    Doesn’t seem like a very grounded accusation.

    Don’t believe there is a question about them trying to block. They are in FACT going to the trade commission and want the PS3 blocked from selling in the USA.

    I read on wired.com that LG is saying that the PS3 violates 2 patents.
