SCEA Sued AGAIN – For Patent Infringment

Rothschild Digital Media Innovations are suing SCEA for patent infringement, they claim that Sony have infringed on their patent, which is for an interactive remote computer interface system, here is a quote from the court document:

Quote:Rothschild is the owner of United States Patent No. 6,101,534 (“the ‘534
patent”), entitled “Interactive, Remote, Computer Interface System.” Mr. Leigh
Rothschild is the sole inventor of the ‘534 patent. The ‘534 patent was duly and lawfully
issued on August 8, 2000 by the United States Patent and Trademark office and is now,
and has been at all times since its date of issue, valid and enforceable. The ‘534 patent
was previously the subject of an ex parte reexamination by the United States Patent and
Trademark Office, which concluded with a confirmation of the patent’s validity.

The ‘534 patent relates to an interactive, remote, computer interface
system comprised of, among other things, a remote server assembly, a local processor assembly and a data storage assembly including a compact, portable and interchangeable
computer readable medium. The ‘534 patent further relates to the interaction between
these components and the data therein to create a desired user experience.

SCEA makes, uses, imports, sells and/or offers to sell, within the United
States, a system that directly infringes at least claim 1 of the ‘534 patent. More
specifically, SCEA’s PlayStation products and services – comprised of PlayStation
Network servers, PlayStation consoles and PlayStation game discs – directly infringe at
least claim 1 of the ‘534 patent.

SCEA meets the ‘534 remote server assembly limitation through its
PlayStation Network servers, which SCEA maintains and operates. Further, PlayStation
game consoles (i.e., PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PSP) meet the
local processor assembly limitation of the ‘534 patent. SCEA’s game discs and game
cards satisfy the compact, portable and interchangeable computer readable medium
limitation of the ‘534 patent.
