Sony faces 10-day ban on PS3 imports in europe

Looks like it’s Sony’s turn to get hit with the legal bite.

A court in the Netherlands has ruled in favor of LG over it’s patents issues with Sony on the Blu-ray technology sitting primly inside the PlayStation 3.  The result?  A 10-day ban of PlayStation 3 imports all over europe.  Existing stocks will remain with retailers but any incoming units will be confiscated and stored until the 10-day ban is lifted or the court complete rules against Sony.

The suit specifically targets the PlayStation 3 Slim.

What kind of loss is Sony expecting if they do manage to lose out in this licensing feud?  They’ll be compensating LG for every PS3 Slim unit ever sold.

Ouch.
