LG, the Korean tech company who we all know about, is trying to knock Sony off from US by attempting to prevent it from selling PS3s and Bravia TVs in the country.
Eurogamer’s obtained some documents which shows LG complaining that Sony is infringing four patents belonging to them in relation to “certain electronic devices having a Blu-Ray Disc player and components thereof.”
The only Sony product mentioned in the filings? PS3, ofcouse. Precisely, the model no. CECH-2501A.
IPC are the only group with power to block the sale of imported goods that infringe US patents and we don’t see them to do it, unless LG has some very valid reasons for the complaints.
What do you make of it, will this be the end of the road for PS3 in US?
