Online retailer Lik-Sang has been served with a lawsuit courtesy of Sony. Recently Sony was successful in stopping several UK stores from selling imported PSP's in the UK, and now they're hoping to do the same with Lik-Sang. This is hardly the first time that Lik-Sang has had legal trouble. In the past, they've gotten in hot water with both Nintendo and Microsoft, and both times they came away losers.

A statement released by Lik-Sang indicates they won't be going down without a fight. "This lawsuit comes as a total surprise to Lik-Sang.com, given that the laws of Hong Kong are clear when it comes to parallel trade. Hong Kong's legislation is based on the fact that allowing parallel and free trade will restore natural competition and benefit consumers with lower prices. Hong Kong, one of the pioneering countries respecting worldwide exhaustion of trademark rights, allows free trade once an item entered the market for sale."

For now Lik-Sang is continuing to sell the system, but that could change at any time. We'll keep you posted as events unfold.
