Lawyers Gone Wild Pt. II: Sony Sued Again, Guess Why!

It appears Orinda Intellectual Properties is suing Sony Corporation, Sony Electronics, Sony Computer Entertainment, and Sony Computer Entertainment America is a suit filed for patent infringement.

What is the infringement on? None other then Blu-ray, this time the suit relates to the actual storage of data on the disc. Not only does Orinda want royalties but they also want sales of any Sony Blu-ray player (including the PS3) to stop in America immediately.

Orinda has also demanded a jury trial be set up to resolve the matter. To quote Orinda

Orinda has been and will continue to be damaged as a result of Defendants’ infringing conduct

I don’t believe this has enough “legs” so to speak to cause damage, just add it to the pile of Blu-ray law suits for now.

    Aside from any actual merits the case may/may not have, it seems kinda funny to me that they can wait in the shadows for over 2 years before bothering to sue. The “daily damage” can’t be all THAT bad eh? :p

    My guess is they decided to wait till after the format war because since HD DVD use’s a different storage method then Blu Ray why sue a potentially dead technology. Now that Blu Ray won companies are able to sue who ever they want.
