PS3 banned in Europe due to legal dispute with LG

Posted on Tuesday, March 01 2011 @ 21:05:24 CET by


Guardian reports Sony's PlayStation 3 console is temporarily banned in Europe after LG won a preliminary injunction against Sony. LG alleges that Sony infringes on its Blu-ray technology patents.
The ruling by the civil court of justice in the Hague means that all new PS3s have to be confiscated as they are imported into the UK and the rest of Europe for at least 10 days.

If the injunction was extended it could mean consoles disappearing from high street shelves. It is understood that Sony and computer games retailers typically have about two to three weeks' worth of PS3s in stock across the continent.

Tens of thousands of PS3s were seized by customs officers last week in the Netherlands, the Guardian has learnt, in a dispute that centres on Sony's allegedly infringing use of Blu-ray technology belonging to LG.
