Bleem! sues Sony! - May 23,2001 by JoseQ
In an unexpected turn of events, Bleem! LLC, has filed a motion against Sony, for allegedly, arm-twisting retailers into halting the sale of bleem! for Dreamcast. While the product still sits on the Best Sellers list at EB World, apparently EB among other retailers have stopped selling the product, due to Sony's threat of legal action. While Sony has failed to get a court to legally halt bleem! from being on the street, Sony's letters have apparently succeeded at scaring retailers away. This however, is illegal, thus why they're now in court. You go bleem! Thanks to Retrogames for the news.

Maybe if the ports of games from the Playstation hadn't been so crap, we wouldn't need to play the originals on a PC or Dreamcast anyway.

Can't get Bleemcast from any retailer in the UK, even the independents. Sucks when you can't wait to get your hands on the product!

Hail SONY?

An enormous megloconglomerate... Some people just don't understand capitalism. You must set your emotions seperate from a company label.

Let the companies fight for your dollar. You shouldn't fight to give a company your dollar.

This is a war that'll be played out time and time again, as large companies try to strongarm smaller ones out of their way. Microsoft, anyone?

I can only hope that Bleem wins this one. I may not be too happy with their decisions thus far, but if Sony were to win there'd be a dangerous legal precedent.

I hope Sony take Bleem to the cleaners seeing as they ripped off a lot of people with Bleem for PC, tossers.
