GO-VIDEO WILL APPEAL REJECTION OF VCR CLAIM

Go-Video Inc. said Friday it will appeal a federal court jury's decision to reject its claim that three Japanese consumer electronics firms conspired to prevent it from introducing a dual-deck videocassette recorder.

The company had sought $500 million Sony Corp., Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. Ltd., and Victor Company of Japan, claiming the three prevented it from capturing 12 percent of the VCR market, had it had begun marketing the technology in 1985.
