* Sony and the Import Wars

Playstation2/Sony
In the UK, Sony is trying hard to make sure nobody's importing PSPs early.

ElectricBirdLand's managing director, Dan Morelle, suggests that Sony's legal action is flawed, as the company has failed to register relevant PSP trademarks, an issue he believes could potentially lead to a further delay of the European launch of the device, which is currently scheduled for 1 September.

"The threat of legal action is not because Sony is concerned about the impact that small importers like us will have on its brand or sales," Morelle claims, "it's simply because of their inability to implement something so vital [as a European trademark] to the success of its new product."
I really don't see why Sony does this kind of thing - it just pisses off potential buyers who want to play the games and mess with the console, after all.
