Toshiba files suit against German DVD maker

Toshiba filed a patent suit against EDD of Germany over DVD technology

Toshiba has filed a lawsuit against German DVD replicator EDD Bizz over the alleged infringement of DVD patents.

The Japanese company said EDD has been manufacturing DVD videos in Germany without a licensing agreement from Toshiba, which holds some essential patents for making DVDs.

Toshiba filed a lawsuit in the Dusseldorf Regional Court in a bid to halt the alleged patent infringement. It wants a monetary settlement and a licensing agreement from EDD.

Toshiba has filed several lawsuits in the U.S. against companies over patent infringement issues, including a Taiwanese DVD drive maker in 2002, an American importer and wholesaler of DVD-related products in 2005, and 17 manufacturers and importers of DVD-related products in April 2007. The company vowed to continue vigilantly protecting its DVD technology.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
