Presentation remote maker sues Nintendo over Wii remote

Cute. UltimatePointer, maker of the Upoint laser-pointer presentation remote, is suing Nintendo and other retailers for the sale of the Nintendo Wii Remote. They claim that Nintendo has infringed on their patent, their "Easily Deployable Interactive Direct-Pointing System and Presentation Control System and Calibration Method," and that retailers like Best Buy and GameStop have also infringed by selling the device.

What's funny is that the Upoint is not even available for sale now. What's funnier is that this Upoint has nothing to do with games. It's a laser pointer mouse!

Gamasutra says that UltimatePointer is looking to receive damages due to the alleged infringement, along with costs of court and an award of attorney fees.

Hmmph. Patent trolls.
