Sony v. Bleem! was a legal dispute between Sony Computer Entertainment and the Bleem! emulator manufacturer. Bleem! was a popular PlayStation emulator at the time (1999) that allowed players to play PlayStation games on their Dreamcast and PC. After two days of taking pre-orders, Sony filed a lawsuit against Bleem! for "violating rights" and "unfair competition". However, Sony did not win on any counts in the dispute and a protective order was issued for Bleem! Despite winning, high legal fees caused Bleem! to go out of business.
