Today holds some bogus news that comes at the hands of Sony (surprise). Apparently Sony has been launching a legal war against Lik-Sang for the past couple weeks and Sony has finally won out against the online retailer. Today, Lik-Sang announced they will be closing up shop due to Sony’s onslaught. Here is a snippet of the press release:

Hong Kong, October 24th of 2006 –, 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.

I have personally used Lik-Sang’s online store and have always come away impressed. I received free shipping on my first purchase and received my package in only 2 days! I never once had a bad experience through their site. They will be missed. All the best to the company and employees in their future endeavors.
