Sony and LG resolve patent dispute

The two firms have been filing patent infringement claims against each other since December last year, one of which resulted in European customs officers being ordered to seize incoming shipments of PS3 consoles. The matter has now been resolved, with an LG spokesperson telling Reuters: “LG and Sony recently agreed to drop patent infringement lawsuits against each other.” As part of the agreement, LG says it has signed a cross-licensing deal with Sony.
