I liked LG before, now i can only say that they should not even do anything at all
...and it starts -.-
Thank God this is over. I was worried I wouldn't be able to buy my PS3 with all of this going on (I don't live in Europe, but it could have been a problem for me).
Most that will come out of the Patent suit is a serious case of Royalties. I was really surprised by the customs block etc. tbh when I head the nature of the case.
Just remember that this is not over yet.
Yes, it isn't over. The article still says that the legal proceedings will still be going on. However, I'm not sure why the 130,000 euros goes up by 200 k more if they fail to pay up (I'm not even sure why they have to pay anything).
Sony lost out in money AND they had to pay to appeal the injunction.
So is that a problem? The case was valid enough for customs to seize all PS3s for (10 day period?). They expended money so they could get the injunction released. To top it all off, the proceedings are still going on, so it also proves that the case still has validity. If the case is still valid, why does LG have to pay before the case is done. The article says nothing about out of court settlements sooo... Honestly, if the legal system everywhere is just as messed up as the US, then I'm not sure what to think.
Wait, am I understanding this right; the European courts banned PS3s from being sold in Europe temporarily, something that isn't done lightly, and wouldn't have happened if LG didn't make a good casel; then Sony repeals it, and LG owes SONY for something the Europeans agreed on? What?
That's what I was thinking. Is this a common occurrence or something?
LG wanted the injunction, LG pays the price.
And they didn't ban them from being sold, they just temporarily stopped them from being imported.
It's all just a big, fat money-slapping joke.
It's great this is over. Now we just have to watch the other case unfold.
Well lets hope sony loses the main case. LG could then say stop using our tech and that would be it for the ps3 unless they make the ps3.5.
I knew this would happen for some reason, now I'm waiting for the main fight (Geohot)
