    Well let's hope it gets put to bed like previous cases have.

    Is it just me or wouldn't that patent be wiped out really quickly when someone points out that CD's were already doing that long before the patent was filed? (Test: Origonal: Failed; Prior art: Failed; Non Obvious: Failed magnetic disks have been doing this forever!)

    Good point, I think a lot of these court cases are simply firms trying it on.

    Yet another frivolous lawsuit in the US. For once I hope Sony wins.

    Re: News - Blu-ray lawsuit requests that Sony pull PS3 supply

    This time, Californian-based firm Orinda Intellectual Properties has applied to the courts claiming that Sony has violated patent number 5,438,560, which relates to “an optical disk-shaped recording medium comprising a plurality of tracks,” filed in 1995 by Hyundai Electronics Industries

    That statement is a little misleading/incomplete. The patent is actually about a certain way of handling bad sectors when recording to the disc.

    The US PTO is run by a bunch of muppets, no wonder this patent was accepted. Prior art defense will squash this patent into oblivion.
