Nintendo successfully fends off another patent case against Wii U and 3DS

Add it to the list

Nintendo's hardware seems to be a magnet for litigation. Everyone thinks the Wii U or the 3DS infringe on their patents, but Nintendo proves time and time again that they don't. The Japanese platform-holder has another successful defense to add to the long list of victories.

In 2012, Plaintiffs Technology Properties Limited LLC, Phoenix Digital Solutions LLC, and Patriot Scientific Corporation sued Nintendo in California federal court and in the International Trade Commission alleging patent infringement. Early last year, the ITC ruled no such infringement; on Friday of last week, California federal courts came to the exact same conclusion.

Via press release this morning, Nintendo took the opportunity to peacock and assert Wii U and 3DS' non-patent infringing ways. Ajay Singh, Nintendo of America's Director of Litigation and Compliance, said "We are very pleased with this decision, which again confirmed that Nintendo's products do not infringe." He continued "It also confirms that Nintendo continues to develop unique and innovative products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others. Nintendo will defend its products and its innovations, even if it must do so multiple times in different places and over many years."
