Lik-Sang.com Out of Business due to Multiple Sony Lawsuits

Lik-Sang.com, the popular gaming retailer from Hong Kong, has today announced that it is forced to close down due to multiple legal actions brought against it by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Limited and Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. Sony claimed that Lik-Sang infringed its trade marks, copyright and registered design rights by selling Sony PSP consoles from Asia to European customers, and have recently obtained a judgment in the High Court of London (England) rendering Lik-Sang's sales of PSP consoles unlawful.

So much for that partnership I setup for Blogcritics!

I found this out when I got up today because Matt emailed me, and I got an email of my order being canceled. I was in line (in the front of the line too) to purchase a Japanese Wii. So much for that.

But this is major news, I did not think the lawsuits by Sony would topple Lik-Sang. I wonder how Play-Asia feels right now about selling Sony products?

No matter how this plays out in the press, it is going to be a major black eye for Sony, as many, many people used Lik-Sang to buy games. What a sad day.

And it doesn't matter if Sony has every right to defend itself. Right now, that is besides the point. As if Sony needed to give people another reason to hate them, well, here is another reason.
