Administrative law judge David Shaw supports Xbox 360 Ban in the US

Posted By | On 23rd, May. 2012

Microsoft have a fight on their hands at the moment – as administrative law judge David Shaw supports the ban of Xbox 360’s in the US. Microsoft fought back saying it will reduce competition, however the judge replied that Sony and Nintendo can fill that gap.

So yeah. Judge Shaw also recommended that, “the commission prevent sale of the consoles with a cease-and-desist order, and that Microsoft post a bond equal to 7 percent of the declared value of unsold Xbox inventory already in the country,” wrote Courthouse News Service.

“Microsoft argued that Shaw’s exclusion order does not serve the public interest because it would leave consumers of video game consoles with only two options to satisfy their needs: the Sony Playstation and the Nintendo Wii.

“Shaw rejected that argument, finding that the public interest in enforcing intellectual property rights outweighs any potential economic impact on video game console buyers. Moreover, he said, Microsoft did not even try to show that its competitors were incapable of meeting demand for the consoles.”
