The Register: Connectix ships PlayStation emulator for Windows

"Mac software developer Connectix began shipping the Windows version of its Virtual Game Station (VGS) PlayStation emulator today through its own online store and retail outlets."

"Sony has been on Connectix's case ever since VGS was released in January 1999. Less than a week after the preliminary injunction was overturned, Sony initiated a new, separate patent infringement case against Connectix, part of which almost certainly contains a fresh request that sales of VGS be blocked."

"And if that case fails, Sony can still tie Connectix up further for copyright violation under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which specifically outlaws the creation of tools to circumvent copy protection mechanisms, something that Sony alleges Connectix has done in order to make VGS work."
