Sony does not have the PS5 trade mark for India. Could this be a reason for no PS5 India release date and price? Here’s what we know.
Trademark squatting will not work in India either.
Not really, as it will impact the Indian consumers. Only in the short term though - this will be easily circumvented, even in a court.
This is ridiculous. A court should over turn this or Sony needs to cut a deal. Failing that, start an advertising campaign detailing to indian gamers why they can't have a PS5 and whose stoping it from happening.
WIPO has become involved in several high profile cases in India and it crushed the cybersquatters. Cases of cybersquatting there blew up back when they introduced the .in domain. Some just pay out but the companies that have fought have won because the legal standard in India is that the filing by the squatter must have been made in good faith and that never pans out. I do not think this case is the reason for the India delay but rather simple stock availability is the cause.
Curious, what makes you believe is a stock issue?
I think if more stock were available we would have seen successive preorder waves to more combative territories. Also stock isn’t just about production but also the ability to move production.
People in I did can afford a PS5? Wow.
There’s over a billion people in India and not all of them are poor ......
Is PlayStation Series V available?
