Selling (PS3’s) to Europe Could Cost You!

ps3Mitra Pahlabod of Davenport Lyons sent MCV a “warning” that those who sell PS3’s to Europe (importers) may face legal troubles, and ultimately legal finances extending beyond the profit of selling a PS3. This warning however comes from a law firm rather than Sony themselves, most likely based off of the previous annihilation of Lik-Sang by Sony themselves. The warning proceeds as the following –

As far as importers of PS3s are concerned, they should bear in mind that any profit they may make from importing the consoles into Europe without Sony’s consent this Christmas may well be short lived,” Pahlabod stated. “They run the real risk of defending lengthy and costly trademark infringement proceedings.”

This situation is mainly a concern that some major importing websites (that specialize in importation alone), but as an average consumer selling one on eBay, there shouldn’t be much of a concern. Sony’s defeat of Lik-Sang harmed the importing community, but some still live on.

Thanks Badam for sending this in!
