Hmm, the trouble with LG’s suit is that they seem to have taken an inordinate amount of time to notice or do anything about the alleged copyright infringement. How long have PS3s been on the market now?

I was thinking the same thing. Plus, wasn’t Sony one of the biggest proponents of Blu Ray in the Hi-Def battle?

It’s retaliatory. Sony is going after LG for some phone related patent stuff so they’re in turn going after Sony. link

Recent memory of patent disputes generally involves money settlements (being primarily civil actions in court) so there is very little possibility injunctive relief would ever happen to a compny such as Sony. With the new lineup of Android tablets & smart phones comign to market this year… any way to push ahead of the competition will be important… and using many techniques such as customs, courts, public opinion, rumors, and dirty tricks just to get a piece of Apple’s market share.
