Harsh... Very harsh.


Harsh... what? hoping millions die in a war because Sony were (allegedly) light fingered on the IP of another company.... Very measured response I thought.   

Jesus.   

I am still waiting for all those people that applauded the EU for stopping MS bundling IE to come in and defend this decision too....  I might be waiting a while I think.

Very different cases though, but expected post from you.

and an expected response from you.

very different indeed: 

One was a company bundling free software with its OS, the other is a company (allegedly) stealing intellectual property from a rival....   (I actually doubt this will stick tbh but I cant believe some of the responses in here)

Bundling or forcing people to use their crappy browser. And something needed to be done about it. I wish we can stop them from shoving bing in our faces as well.

sony's a way bigger company than lg either this is fake or if this is true sony's gonna get them back hard!!

if we see a decline in weekly sales i will belive you

sony sued first, so isn't it more like LG is hitting back hard?

lg is a great company that makes great products, also is second largest tv manufacturs in the world, and if i'm not wrong i believe lg had more profits in their division than sony this year.



Their TV's are inferior to Sony's and one of their CD drives thrashed a disc of mine. Not to mention the fact that Sony NEC drives exceed theirs in quality by leaps and margins.

If you want great and very affordable products, buy Samsung/Sharp.

That's interesting, considering Sony is using LCD panels produced by LG:

http://www.businessweek.com/news/2011-01-06/lg-display-resumes-lcd-panel-supplies-for-sony-tvs.html

Given that the article is dated January 6th 2011, I now expect cheaper and shittier Sony TV's. And the Bravia in our living room was purchased mid 2010, so it's untouched.

Recommended TV's are usually Panasonic/Samsung/Sony/Sharp. Not without a reason.

Must be good enough for Sony if they decide to use them, right?

Besides, Samsung has been supplying the larger LCDs to Sony, since Sony refused to follow the rest of the market into flat panel screens, stubbornly hanging on to their Trinitron CRTs. So, why not just get a Samsung?  They designed the panel, so probably have more knowledge of it's limitations. And for MUCH cheaper price than Sony, to boot.

Good enough =/= as good as others.

And Samsung TV's are a good choice (albeit not THAT much cheaper than Sony's)... Sony's screens are  acually theirs - developed in a joint venture with Samsung.

Won't come to anything.

Sony, Phillips and Pioneer developed blu ray so they probally have this coverered already .

Sony probally already appealing now.

I think so too tbh...  

Cant believe Sony would knowingly steal something this important and obvious.

PS3 was all set to "DOMINATE" in 2011, now it looks like we possibly won't see a price cut...oh-oh!?!?

So they shouldn't be allowed to bundle their browser with their OS? I don't even use IE, but I still see that's a bunch of crap. Nobody would be forced to use anything though, so I'm not sure where you're getting that from.

No problem, Sony stuffed the channels for two years now: there are years of ps3 supply in teh OVERSTUFED CHANNELZ!!!!!!

What, 2/3 weeks? In the biggest market for Sony? Come on...

One must enforce a patent as soon as there is a possible infringement, if you don't enforce your patent then the patent is void. PS3 was on the market for almost 5 years, so, if they filed their complaint this year, they risk to lose their patents.

BTW this is a counter-suit to a suit filed by Sony, to block the import of LG Smartphones (including the WP7 ones).

I am betting the world you care more about PS3 sales than I do. Look at this thread, look who has posted, just the idea of PS3 sales stopping brings in some interesting people.

I highly doubt is going to go anywhere.  Most likely Sony and LG will settle out of court, with little to no money involved.  The biggest thing that will probably happen is that Sony will agree to drop its lawsuit it has against LG.  Though, it probably will hurt sales in about a week when stores run out of their stock.  Unless of course this gets settled much quicker.

The one thing I hate about these patents is companies can just get a shit load of them, most of them not being very specific, and sue other companies who even come out with tech similar to their patent.  Hell, they don't even have to prove they are really working on the tech, just have to patent the idea.
