Sony succeeded in court to have one retailer stop selling imported Sony PSPs in the UK.

GamesIndustry.biz has all the details on rather strange and dramatic case of a tiny retailer ElectricBirdLand versus big corporate Sony. I have really no idea why Sony has a problem with companies selling Japanese Sony PSPs abroad.
I mean the practice of selling Japanese only release gadgets has been going on since years.
There are just many early adopters who do not want to wait until everybody can buy the gadget. I cannot imagine that this is hurting Sony's bottom line. I think Sony's activity here is does hurt their image with the community.
More details on GamesIndustry.biz.

The Sony PSP is going on sale in the Europe this September. I was in London a couple days ago and Virgin for instance advertises in their stores to secure pre-orders of the Sony PSP with money down.
