Nintendo Wins Patent Infrigement Lawsuit

The Texas company, Wall Wireless LLC, that was suing Nintendo for patent infringement lost their case when both the Japanese Patent Office and the United States Patent and Trademark Office ruled in Nintendo’s favor and dismissed the case. The lawsuit was first brought against the company back in 2009 and Nintendo of America’s vice president and deputy general counsel Richard Medway issued this statement:

Nintendo vigorously defends patent lawsuits and other proceedings when we believe we have not infringed another party’s patents. It does not matter where such cases are filed or if it takes more than five years to vindicate our position. Nintendo continues to develop unique and innovative products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the end of the legal struggle for the gaming giant, as last week news broke that Philips is trying to block the sale of Nintendo products in the US, such the Wii and the Wii U over a motion patent dispute.
