Quoting Blu-ray patent infringements, Korean electronics company LG have filed a complaint with the US International Trade Commission against Sony, requesting that the “importation and marketing of Sony’s PlayStation 3 to the United States” be outlawed.
Though specifically referencing Sony’s HD console, other Blu-ray devices are also called out in the filing. Going for the double-whammy against the Japanese electronics giant, LG have also filed a separate patent infringement complaint in relation to Sony’s Bravia TVs.
How serious is this? Could the PS3 be banned in the US? Considering Sony once filed a similar complaint against LG in relation to the Korean company’s mobile phones, similarly requesting their “banning” in the States, we’re thinking this is merely something to keep the lawyers at both companies busy until The Last Guardian releases.
