    Hi Guys,

    it seems to be another time we get hit by strange philosophy from
    Sony ... and they take it again out on Lik-Sang. Seems to be
    the only Asian mail-order/internet shop they know :rotfl:

    [ ... Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Limited and Sony Computer Entertainment Inc commenced legal actions against Lik-Sang.com in the High Court of Hong Kong for selling PSP consoles ...]

    Source

    Best thing is that Sony is really late with this action - I believe most people have imported theirs already.

    So hurry to get you PSP then :D

    Hong Kong allows this type of selling anyways, so they're screwed. While I can understand not letting them host the PSP manual, they're stopping them from even having a link where to get it (ie for free on the Sony website). Lunacy.

    I wish Sony good luck. They'll need it to even get past the 1st court hearing.

    3 weeks from the launch of the PSP in UK - sour grapes/petulance on Sony's part. Here's my metaphor: Its a case of a spoilt child stamping their feet in a toy shop, until the parents give them what they want

    Lik Sang seem to have it right. Harming "Sony's economic interests". Yeah right. More PSPs sold = more PSP software sold = more money for Sony. Not as simple as that, but thats the general idea
