Sony won an injunction to stop a UK online reseller from selling imported PSP devices.
Sony won an injunction to stop online retailer ElectricBirdLand from infringing its
trademarks and selling PSPs. ElectricBirdLand has 28 days to prepare a defence and
will be back in court on 18 July, according to the BBC.
EBL managing director Dan Morelle said to the court that other firms were selling
PSPs without facing action from Sony.
He asked the judge if he was allowed to offer his customers replacement machines
because failure rates have been as high as ten per cent.
Morelle also complained to the judge that "men in dark glasses" had been sent to
deliver documents to his home and left his wife - who was due to give birth yesterday
- feeling intimidated. More details can be found on GamesIndustry.biz
The PSP was initially schedulled to be launched in the UK in March but this has now
been pushed back to September.
