LG v Sony Computer Entertainment

Case Summary  |  27 July 2011

 

Daniel Alexander QC and Andrew Lykiardopoulos acted for Sony in successfully defending this application for summary judgment in this patent dispute concerning Sony’s PlayStation 3 players. LG applied for summary judgment on whether a piece of prior art could be relied upon as being “made available to the public” in circumstances where to obtain it a fee had to be paid and a confidentiality agreement signed. Arnold J refused LG’s application holding that the point was arguable both on the law and on the facts.
