European PlayStation 3 Seizures Lifted And LG Fined

LG's triumph over Sony was short lived as a court in Hague has lifted the prejudgment seizure order on PlayStation 3 stock in Europe.

Even more, the court ordered LG to pay a fine of €130,000 with an extra €200,000 for each day passing before the fine was paid.

It is worth noting that the new ruling and the fine are concerned with the prejudgment seizure only and has no effect on the original case in which LG seeks a royalty payment of $2.50 to $2.55 for each Blu-ray device sold by Sony.

Meh

Business politics, learn them nothing is really owned by anyone that includes ideas, patents and rights. However to sue someone over any of the stated your case must be backed with dirty money for there to even be a chance in hell of winning squat.

In LG's case they provoked the wrong kind of attention and got burned, what is more interesting is why they did it.

yep

I will never buy, recommend, check, take an interest in or even read up on an LG product ever again in my entire life ...times are tough and LG wants to be a douche bag ...have a nice life.

LOL indeed.... when are they

LOL indeed.... when are they going to learn that you cant pick on SONY one of the largest companys in the world.

It happen in 1995 with the psone. than with the ps2 and now with the ps3. each and ever time those who picked or bullyed SONY have failed. this is another great day for Sony. and sony shouldnt pay anything to the dumb assholes at LG. Lifes good? bullshit when your claiming something that is not true at all. Life is more short lived for a company that sues for no reason but to get ahead of another company and for this you have lost me from buying your dumb lame ass products
