To quote from EuroGamer: "The [Register or Login to view links] contacted Eurogamer to reveal [Register or Login to view links] 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.

LG and Sony are the world's second- and third-largest TV makers, trailing Samsung."
