Well, the didn’t say that specifically, but you know someone in their office has said that at some time or another. These poor guys and their waggle keep getting sued by other companies that think they thought of the idea first. And just like that curly-haired blonde kid that never got anywhere with these games, companies like Guardian Media Technologies are getting nowhere with saying that they came up with Waggle Tech first.
Nintendo proudly sends out a press release that basically says that they shot down another one. The U.S. District court judge granted an early dismissal for Guardian’s patent infringement lawsuit.
“We are very pleased with the Court’s decision,” said Rick Flamm, Nintendo of America’s senior vice president of Legal and general counsel. “Nintendo vigorously defends patent lawsuits. At the earliest stages of this case, Nintendo convinced the Court to dismiss this case as Guardian’s patent had nothing to do with Nintendo’s products.”
Perhaps one day someone will truly come along with something they genuinely invented that Nintendo stole. I know how that feels. To this day I maintain that I invented the whole caps on the internet equals yelling thing. No one believes me. Who do I sue?
A U.S. District Court judge has summarily dismissed a patent-infringement lawsuit against Nintendo brought by Guardian Media Technologies, Ltd. Guardian had alleged that the Wii™ console infringed on one of its patents (U.S. Patent No. 4,930,158). Judge Manuel Real of the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles entered an order granting Nintendo’s motion for summary judgment of non-infringement on June 8, 2009, less than six months after the lawsuit was filed.
