PS3 Targeted in Blu-ray Suit
Posted by XanTium | 28-8-2008 21:41 EST
From edge-online.com: [QUOTE] Mountain View, Calif.-based Orinda Intellectual Properties USA has filed suit against Sony, claiming the PS3-maker has infringed on Blu-ray-related patents.
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 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." [/QUOTE]
