More patent infringement cases are coming Sony's way, and another of them focuses around the PlayStation 3. Most recently, Parallel Processing Corp filed suit against Sony in regarding to a memory technology, making it the third suit in just a few months time that have threatened the console.
The company isn't specifying exactly which part of the patent, which they filed nearly 16 years ago, has been violated. The demands they are making, however, seem more than a little extreme. On top of money, they are expecting the “destruction” of Sony products that infringe upon the patent:
Parallel Processing Corporation is seeking damages and attorney's fees with interest, as well as the impounding and destruction of all Sony products that infringe on the patent.
I seriously doubt they will get anywhere far with this case, especially not when demanding that Sony obliterate a console that has already been such a tax on them.
