California company alleges patent infringements in PS3 maker's latest optical disc technology.
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ssssshhhhhhhhhh ... well, it's gamespot...nevermind. bluray lives!
"Target is seeking a permanent injunction preventing Sony from violating its patent rights in the future, as well as damages with interest, multiplied due to what it characterizes as deliberate and willful infringement."
willful infringement, unless sony had worked with target willful infringement is meant as a joke. No compnay will go Patent hunting. Multiplier will be denied unless proven wrong.
quotes of the day.
"For those that dont understand what this is sayin... Target is sueing sony for the type of materials that blu-ray uses in its media disks. Plain and simple, Blu-ray has to do with the laser not the disk. Example, you burn a cd using a DVD burner. It doesn't instatly change that disc into a DVD its still a CD-Rom. IF!!!! Sony looses this case. All They would have to do is develope a new disc, not the blu-ray technology! So just calm down ppl."
"It's always better to sue once you know there's a substantial amount of money to be made. Who cares if it was infringing on a patent when it first came"
"May 21 headline "Sony shares hit 5 year high"... now lawsuit.. 2+2=4 here people.. Greed is thine enemy! "
He said in the article it was only some blue-ray discs, and since they named sonys movie studio in the suit I am led to believe this is mostly about blu-ray movies and may not effect the discs used for games.
companies are so senaky, and they lay dormant and stike as fast as a Cobra, after everything is said and done.
That reminds me of Microsoft trying to sue Open Source Community to scare vendors into licensing their technology or even worst, their operating system.
Hey, GGRREEAATT find Jason, well done. News at eleven!...............
Seriously though, this will end up absolutely nowhere!!
try so hard to find negative Sony news. It's actually rather amusing how much attention these people pay to the PS3 when they hate it so much.
News is news, if you don't like it don't read it. I didn't write it and I don't go looking for negative news, I just happened to come across this. I don't go looking for PS3 news, Why don't you look at my past submisions and you will see I post all news equally. I may be a 360 fan and I'm biased about my choice but reporting news for one side is wrong I have "ethics" This is a news site for gamers good or bad you can't be selective just because you don't like what it says. Get a clue dude I see news good and bad on all the consoles. What do you want everyone to report news for the PS3 only? then go to a f**king PS3 site.
on a personal note you can kiss my ass. I been submiting news on here for almost a year now, so again kiss my ass.
f**king PS3 fans I swear bunch of whining freaking babys "I dont like this news it talks bad about the PS3, I'm going to go sign a petition and complain everyday" wah wah wah wah boo hoo boo hoo f**king loser. Why don't you go cry at the PS3 forums at least you will only get PS3 news there.
jason i ask myself how much brain you have ? lol, why do you hate so much. i mean you must have fallen on your head. every normal person would say that you are ill in your head. i mean come on, i think xbox360 is crap, but you dont see me in the xbox360 section, and you dont see me collecting bs articles about the xbox360. why ? because i am not as ill as you are. period. the same goes for the mart. both very ill. go to a psychiator.
Republicans >_> ... lol
what kind of world are we live in.......
HEHE, crazy I think everything has been patented already! I mean everything new that comes out someone else sues saying they patented the idea first, but never got around to doing anything about it. So crazy. LOL
Toshiba and Sony have patents regarding every little detail for their respective products. This will be worse case scenario an out of court settlement.
lol worst scenario.. Sony counter sue, wins, they pay for our rumble lol
Kinda funny how they're targeting Sony and not a single other Blu-ray Association member. This will probably get thrown out.
I was thinking the same thing. Sony did not develop Blu-ray by them selves. Philips had a big part in the development, I don't think this company will succeed against Sony in this lawsuit.
Blu-ray Association members?
Not all members even contribute anything except support.
Apple's on the board but hasn't done anything with BD.
Some are even on HD-DVD and BD boards.
Also if they win against Sony..they will then start going down the line and suing the rest.
Well its back to the drawing board.
Kaz: Ken wake up, ps3 is in trouble can you design PS4?
Ken: No prob, remove the bluray and put dvd drive and it will be PS4. Gnite.
If this company actually thought that they could win and had the patent on some of the Blu-ray discs they would sue all the companies involved. From the article Sony is the only one involved in the suit. Why is it that if Fox, Disney, Paramount, Dreamwork, Warner Brother's and others use the disc's and are in the Blu-ray association why aren't they being sued? I don't see this lasting very long.
The funny thing about this is that it's only more negative attention to Sony and their "awesome" PS3 that was supposed to be selling like hotcakes. Even if there is no lawsuit the harm on Sony's reputation and also their already pathetic hardware sales has been done. No one wants to buy a PS3 so they can look at it in all its expensive looking glossiness and be like "hey guys check this out it's awesome but lets not play games on it they don't make video games for this thing it's a console but we don't like playing games why don't we watch some protein folding YAY!"
I love PS2. I'm not a hater I just think Sony F**CKED up.
This guy obviously has a thing out for Sony...Don't believe this clown....he's the type of guy that would drive a ford over an acura.
Not really. They'll shrug this one off
Sorry. Just bored at work (BAW)
