Nintendo Wins Patent Infringement Case

Another one bites the dust.

A patent infringement case at the International Trade Commission has been won by Nintendo. The case was brought by three patent-licensing companies, Technology Properties Limited, LLC, Phoenix Digital Solutions LLC, and Patriot Scientific Corporation, that originally filed the complaint in July, 2012.



The complaint was filed against Nintendo for infringing three patents on their high-performance, low-cost processor. Both the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DSi handheld systems were in question. However, after a year and a half, the case concluded to find that none of the patents were being infringed by Nintendo.



Nintendo of America’s vice president and deputy general counsel Richard Medway spoke on matter:



"We are very pleased with the commission’s determination, which confirmed the judge’s finding that Nintendo’s products do not infringe the asserted patent. Nintendo’s track record demonstrates that we vigorously defend patent lawsuits, including cases in the ITC, when we believe we have not infringed another party’s patent. Nintendo continues to develop unique and innovative products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others."

NWR should have a small article or a podcast mentioning how many cases like this have Nintendo faced, how many won/lost...and why this happens so frequently?...it is not like Nintendo's business is very diverse.

I'm glad they won.  Where was the Patent case when the DSi was on the market?  I had when these things happen effectively way after the fact.

Exactly, like that programmer on the original Madden waited over 20 YEARS to file a lawsuit against EA. If he really thought they were infringing, why would he wait over 20 years to sue?
