Connectix Wins Partial Victory

May 18, 2000|CNet News.com

Connectix Corp., the maker of software that lets consumers run Sony PlayStation games on personal computers, won a partial victory in its legal battle against a unit of Sony Corp. A federal judge in San Francisco threw out seven of nine counts in a suit brought by Sony Computer Entertainment that alleged that San Mateo, Calif.-based Connectix violated the entertainment giant's copyrights with its Virtual Game Station software. Judge Charles Legge also said he will decide in the next 90 days whether to review the remaining trade secret and unfair competition claims in the suit. Tokyo-based Sony has also filed a separate suit alleging patent infringement, and a Sony representative said the company intends to pursue the remaining complaints.
