Lik-Sang is back Lik-Sang, a Hong Kong-based mod chip and game console product retailer, who was forced to shut down in September, has re-opened its website.
The statement at company's website says:

At September 16th a lawsuit against Lik Sang International Limited and it's directors has been filed in the High Court of Hong Kong by the companies Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft on infringing on copyrighted material and selling Mod Chips or other development and backup devices for the Plaintiffs consoles.

At September 17th, the High Court of Hong Kong issued Orders and Injunctions against Lik Sang which prevented selling or advertising Mod Chips (and other products in questions). The details outlined in those Injunctions took and the company with more than 20 full-time employees "down" - business was officially closed till today. Lik Sang and it's employees couldn't even speak about the case due to an injunction of the High Court.

Lik Sang International Limited has removed all the products in questions from it's website and started it's business operation again by Tuesday, October 15th. Un-shipped orders will be processed in due course and the first shipments are scheduled to dispatch by November 1st. Customers with unshipped orders will receive emails with shipping & or cancellation information in the meantime. New orders are welcome.

Please note that Lik Sang International Limited has always sold the products in questions with the legitimate use in mind and the products haven't been considered as illegal. All the Court Orders have been issued before hearing a single word from the company. However, Lik Sang is not committed on selling the questioned products in the future.

I´m confused. They´re not allowed to sell the chips but they´re still in business?

It seems that they're just selling accessories that we could buy anywhere! I really wanted that vcd chip, now my psone will go to waste!

I would just put that psone up for sale and get a cheap DVD player (or second hand) that could play Video CD-Rs. ;-)

I would but I already have a ps2 to play dvds so I'd much rather have the psone to play vcds than to get another dvd player!
