The dispute between Sony and LG has taken another twist, with the ban on imported PS3s being lifted in the Netherlands.
The ban was put in place in February after LG claimed that the PS3’s blu-ray technology infringed upon several of its own patents, and saw what’s believed to be up to 300,000 consoles seized.
With the ban lifted LG is now facing a fine for damages, as reported by the BBC.
The lifting of the ban isn’t necessarily the end of the matter, however. Sony still faces legal action in the US over the Blu-ray patents, and the dispute with LG – which stems from a case Sony brought against LG’s mobile phone technology – will likely continue.
