118w ago - Korean company LG wants Sony's PlayStation 3 and Bravia televisions banned in the US for what it claims are patent infringements relating to Blu-ray playback.
To quote from EuroGamer: "The Foss Patents blog contacted Eurogamer to reveal documents filed with the US International Trade Commission in Washington relating to the complaint. mThe ITC has the power to block imports of products that violate US patents.
LG claims Sony is infringing four of its patents in a complaint that broadly relates to "certain electronic devices having a Blu-Ray Disc player and components thereof", but the PlayStation 3 (Model No. CECH-2501A) is the only Sony product to be specifically named in the main document of the complaint.
A Bloomberg reports suggests LG's claims are revenge for cases brought against it by Sony in December. Sony claims the Seoul-based company is infringing seven of its patents relating to LG phones. Sony has also filed a civil lawsuit against LG Blu-ray players.
LG and Sony are the world's second- and third-largest TV makers, trailing Samsung."

I know right! Its not so funny when they get a taste of their own medicine. They are definitely the last people who should through stones. They brought this on themselves.
Oh sure, big bulling businesses like them can dish it out, but can't take it when they get it right back. What the hell did they think would happen from all this anyway? If their d1ck was a big as their conceded ego,they would walk with a limp. When you attack people, do you really think they will just bend over and take it without notice?
No, They send that right back where it came from. If they keep this up, they will loose enough potential consumers to be unable to afford their precious ambulance chasing lawsuits in the first place.:angry: They have forced other companies to use the same tactics to defend themselves. They should have gone "tit for tat" instead of burning bridges making enemies right from the start. Stupid so called educated, down to earth, kind loving people my rear.
These guys had to have been handed everything in life to not know, every action no mater how small have both seen and unforeseen consequences. Can you companies not be so immature and just drop it already?No, then maybe sinking to your public relations departments level of intelligence will help.
To quote writing on a bathroom stall "Geese guys, can't we all just hit a bong". probably a bad idea though. some native cultures did, "smok'um peace pipe" right before they scalped their enemies. so, I don't know if its the "Meds" your taking or the "meds" you need to be taking, but you need to do something, and fast. Ow, I know. Stick charcoal briquettes up your bum and sell the diamonds you rectum made to compensate for lost customers. Then you can have your cake and eat it to.
