198w ago - Quite some time ago we reported that Korean company LG wanted Sony's PlayStation 3 and Bravia televisions banned in the US for patent infringements relating to Blu-ray playback.

Today Reuters (linked above) reports that both Sony and LG have finally settled their bitter Blu-ray patent dispute through a cross-licensing deal.

To quote: "LG Electronics and Sony said on Thursday that they have resolved patent disputes between the two firms spanning smartphones, TVs and Blu-ray technology, with LG adding that they have signed a cross-licensing deal.

LG and Sony recently agreed to drop patent infringement lawsuits against each other," a spokeswoman at South Korea's LG Electronics said. Sony confirmed this, but declined to comment further.

Sony had filed a complaint against LG with the U.S. International Trade Commission, seeking to block LG from shipping its Rumor Touch and several other smartphones to the United States.

LG also told the commission that Sony's PlayStation 3 infringed its Blu-ray video technology."
