    LG Wins Injunction Against Sony, PS3 European Shipments Seized

    As a follow-up to our previous article, today the civil court of justice in the Hague has granted LG a preliminary injunction that will see all new PlayStation 3 consoles imported into Europe confiscated by customs for at least ten days leaving only a few weeks worth of PS3 stock left in the channel.

    To quote from MCVUK: "Shipments of PS3 consoles have been seized by European customs officers as an LG injunction against Blu-ray technology seeks to block Sony products from sale, according to a report in The Guardian this afternoon.

    Earlier this month, LG had filed a claim with the International Trade Commission calling for a block on PS3 sales, saying the device infringes on its copyrights.

    The technology firm claims its rival's Blu-ray disc devices use four patented technologies while, Bravia TVs infringe another four.

    At the time, the firm said it wanted to have sales of the PS3 (which plays Blu-rays) and other products banned.

    And now, surprisingly, its got its way. The Guardian reports that an initial injunction has now been granted by the civil court of justice in the Hague, leading to all new imports of PS3s to be confiscated."

    All I can say is hahahaha owned
