Sony Directors Bought Grey Market PSPs Company Sued Vendor Over

Does anyone at Sony have any concept of corporate embarrassment?  That question is based on the latest development in the company's battle against grey market imports in Europe of its Playstation Portable.  It successfully litigated in Europe against the Lik-sang web site, popular with gamers, over illegal imports of Japanese equipment to European customers.  What's also interesting is that the site closed and named Sony Directors (by name) as purchasers.  Sony claims the directors bought the items to check quality control.  Yeah, right. 

Stories are in the Daily Tech and PC World.
