LG Electronics wants the US International Trade Commission (ITC) to stop the import of the PlayStation 3 into the United States and have sales of the units in the country stopped as well. Source: cnet. LG claims that the machine violates at least two of its patents. I don't know if this was always the case, or if it is something that came about only with the new PS3 slim. The PS3 has been around for a while -it seems odd that LG just now found out about any patent infringement. I'm also really surprised because the Blu-ray format is sort of Sony's child. At any rate it will be interesting to see how this plays out. LG is not exactly what I would consider a patent troll.
