Firm Sues Nintendo for Patent Infringement


Sponsored Links
323w ago - Hillcrest Labs, a Maryland-based technology firm, filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Nintendo in US Federal Court today, claiming that Nintendo's Wii console violated Hillcrest Labs' patent rights.

Hillcrest Labs alleges that Nintendo violated patents relating to a handheld three-dimensonal pointing device.

The company said that it holds 29 patents relating to that technology.

"While Hillcrest Labs has a great deal of respect for Nintendo and the Wii, Hillcrest Labs believes that Nintendo is in clear violation of its patents and has taken this action to protect its intellectual property rights," the company said in a statement.

Nintendo had no comment on the litigation.

Anascape also won a 21 million dollar case over the gamecube/classic controller. Patents in this country (and in general) suck. None of these companies do anything even remotely related to gaming if they even make a product at all.
