Last Updated on Thursday, 10 March 2011 03:38 Written by Naota Thursday, 10 March 2011 03:34
As many of you know, LG recently sued Sony over violating a patent in the PS3. During this process, LG was able to have 300,000 shipments of the PS3 stopped in Europe. After a speedy trial, a decision was made.
All 300,000 PS3s will now returned to Sony. They will be able to be shipped to Europe and Sony is allowed to continuing shipping. Additionally, LG will be forced to pay Sony 130,000 euros for court fees. LG has one day to return the PS3s. Each day they are late, they will be fined an additional 200,000 euros.
Now that the dispute for halting the shipments is over, stay tuned for additional information on the result of the patent violation.
