Oh boy, another patent lawsuit filed in that litigious folly called the Texas
court system. This time, the suit pits Parallel Processing Corporation of Newport Beach, California against that legal whipping boy
, Sony. PPC alleges that Sony's Cell processor
-- the horsepower inside the PS3
-- violates a patent for "synchronized parallel processing with shared memory." Filed on July 26th, the five-page complaint by PPC states that Sony's actions are causing "irreparable harm and monetary damage" to the company and are therefore seeking the usual: compensation for damages (with interest) as well as the impounding and destruction of all Sony products infringing on the patent. Good times.
