Connectix heeft z'n eerste overwinning geboekt in de rechtszaak tegen Sony betreffende de Virtual GameStation (Playstation) emulator voor de Mac:
Sony yesterday failed to prevent Connectix from selling its Mac-based PlayStation emulator, Virtual GameStation (VGS), until questions over the software developer's alleged infringement of Sony intellectual property rights and copyrights have been answered.
Last week, Sony Computer Entertainment asked the Federal District Court of San Francisco to order Connectix to cease VGS shipments, release last week to mail order and retail channels as version 1.1. Version 1.0 was sold only by Connectix itself, and only during MacWorld Expo, held the first week of January.
However, the Court rejected Sony's demand, suggesting that the latter's case against Connectix is not (as yet) as strong as it might have hoped. Certainly, Connectix has insistently stated its innocence of the charges, and has denied claims that VGS encourages the piracy of PlayStation games software as vigorously.
