Sony wins against LG, gets seized PS3s back

Posted By | On 10th, Mar. 2011 Under News

Sony won their case against LG, protesting the seizure of 300,000 PS3s by the group.

The order enables Sony to retrieve all 300,000 consoles aswell as get €130,000 in legal fees from LG.

LG has also been instructed to return all consoles to Sony by tomorrow and any delay would result in a additional fine of 200,000 euros per day.

This judgement only applies to the the recent seizure of consoles by LG and the case about patent infringement would continue at a later date.

      I knew they where going to win anyway, it just seems like a company would sue against anything today.

      Yah, if there was a real chance of LG winning this case they would have brought it up when the PS3 first came on the market, not after its raked in millions

      Exactly what I was saying, it doesn’t make any sense.

      Definitely boils down to that, but I think I recall sometime ago that Sony went after LG for some phone patent infringement.
      So, LG might have some vendetta against Sony on this one….
