Tech company takes on SONY over Blu-Ray


Sony Computer Entertainment is once again getting sued over technology used in their consoles. This time, the lawsuit pertains to the Blu-Ray technology.

Californian company Target Technology has taken action against Sony who its technology is being used in the thin alloy film coating on Sony’s Blu-ray discs.

The company has filled the lawsuit against SCEA, Sony Pictures and Sony DADC, with claims that the Blu-ray discs infringe a patent filed by target Technology in 2006 entitled ‘Metal alloys for the reflective or the semi-reflective layer of an optical storage medium’.

Target seeks to receive damages from Sony.

Most recently, Sony was forced to settle for $97 million due to use of the rumble technology from Immersive Co.
