Sony kiss goodbye to millions in import duty

Sony have lost a claim for a refund of import duty at a court of appeal in the UK. The rebate (worth some €50 million/£34.2 million/$69.8 million) was earnestly sought by Sony who claimed their ps2 was in reality a computer and should be duty free. The appeals Judge had some stinging words for Sony, who had questioned the "intellectual honesty" of the high court judge.
