Sony Blu-Ray Alleged to Violate Patent

Sony is on the receiving end of a lawsuit charging it with patent infringement over the coatings on its Blu-Ray discs.  Target Technology applied for patents on reflective layers for optical discs in 2004 and received the patent in 2006.  The company is seeking a injunction against Sony's future use of the technology.  Obtaining an injunction is less of a slam dunk than even George Tenet could predict based on recent Supreme Court rulings, though that remedy doesn't affect the underlying claim or other possible remedies.

More on this as developments occur.  The story is in Ars Technica, BetaNews, and CNET.
