The court battle between Sony Computer Entertainment and Playstation emulator developer Bleem! took a turn on Friday as a U.S District Court judge granted Bleems! motion for leave to amend and assert counterclaims against Sony. Bleem! claims that Sony unlawfully acquired, maintained, and extended its monopoly in the video game market through a combination of anti-competitive practices, including misuse of copyright, patents and other intellectual property. The judge also blocked a Sony request to modify a protective order covering Bleems! confidential business data. Sony had sought access to source code as well as reseller and customer information. "Sony simply has no business demanding this kind of proprietary data from innocent third-parties, particularly when it has no bearing on the case whatsoever," said Bleem lead attorney Jon Hangartner.
