Why is America so freakin’ sue-happy. The latest comes from Orinda Intellectual Properties USA as they claim that the Sony Playstation 3 infringes on patent #5,438,560. Said patent depicts the methods by which you record and reproduce information on an optical disc. Sounds absurd, right?
What a bunch of jackasses. Seriously, they want a jury trial and the immediate injunction on manufacturing, sales and distribution of the gaming/blu-ray console on top of a “reasonable royalty”, says Edge.
“Orinda has been and will continue to be damaged as a result of Defendants’ infringing conduct,” the company said in the filing. “Defendants’ infringing conduct will continue unless permanently enjoined by this court.”
