Seattle Federal Court Dismisses Wii Patent Lawsuit Filed against Nintendo
Nintendo had been engaged in a legal battle over the Wii MotionPlus accessory, which was thought to have infringed on one of Triton’s patents in the US. However, the patent-infringement lawsuit as been dismissed. Judge Richard A. Jones of the U.S. District Court rejected Triton’s legal arguments.
Richard Medway, Nintendo of America’s deputy general counsel, said in a statement:
“We feel vindicated by the court’s ruling. Nintendo’s track record demonstrates that we vigorously defend patent lawsuits, like the Triton lawsuit, when we believe that we have not infringed another party’s patent. Consumers respect Nintendo because we develop unique and innovative products, and because we respect the intellectual property rights of others.”
