The part I consider the most telling, is that Sony and the BDA made public statements before there was a combo player saying there was nothing keeping any company from making such a player. They were basically saying that anyone can make a combo player if they want to, but the BDA companies were so committed to the Blu-ray format, and they were so certain Blu-ray would prevail, there was no reason to make a dual format player.
LG decided to make a combo, has to, essentially, keep it a secret until they are nearly ready to release it, then gets accused of breach of a contract that isn't supposed to exist.
The outright lies of the BDA turn my stomach.
