Sony Can't Shake Blu-Ray Automatic Playback Patent Suit
"We're pleased with the court's ruling and are looking forward to a trial on the merits in March," Martinez told Law360 Monday. "All of Sony's competitors have taken licenses. That's not surprising since the validity of the patents has been confirmed during reexamination by the patent office."

Law360, New York (December 03, 2012, 9:56 PM ET) -- Sony Corp. on Monday failed in its bid to escape TV Interactive Data Corp.'s suit in California federal court accusing a host of electronics companies of making Blu-ray and DVD players that infringe four patents covering automatic playback technology.
U.S. District Judge Phyllis J. Hamilton denied Sony's motions for summary judgment claiming noninfringement and invalidity of TVI's patents, saying the electronics giant had failed to establish invalidity of the patents.
