352w ago - Video game companies are certainly no stranger to law suits, and now it's Sony's turn. A company is alleging that Sony has infringed on a patent which relates to a method for recording and producing information via optical disc. The PS3 is included in this suit.

To quote: In an August 20 court filing obtained by Edge, Orinda alleged that Sony infringed on patent number 5,438,560, which in broad terms describes methods for recording and reproducing information via optical disc.

Orinda also named as defendants subsidiaries Sony Electronics, Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Computer Entertainment America.

Orinda has demanded a jury trial, and is seeking an injunction on manufacturing, sales and distribution of Blu-ray devices such as the PS3, computer peripheral products and dedicated Blu-ray players.

The plaintiff is also asking for "a reasonable royalty."

"Orinda has been and will continue to be damaged as a result of Defendants' infringing conduct," the company said in the filing. "Defendants' infringing conduct will continue unless permanently enjoined by this court."

Exactly. I mean I have no doubt that the jury will see this and most likely declare that Sony wins.

Hmm considering that the PS3 has been out for nearly 2 years and the games have been on Blu-Ray for nearly 2 years too, why did this company decide to sue now?

Its funny i have yet to even hear of that company, but that doesn't mean much... Its just like every other situation were there is a lot of money and the chance to come out ahead, no matter what the out come is. People/companies will always look for any easier way. There probably mad because sony has the ps3 doing all kinds of cool things... lol IDK just tring to keep up on my posts... this just kinda made me mad. i hope sony just shuts them down, and takes everthing from them...
