Gamevice’s patent lawsuit finally reaches game over
Posted on March 12, 2020 by Elias in General Nintendo
After the lawsuit began around three years ago an end is finally in sight. Gamevice originally launched a case against Nintendo for violating its patent on a “combination computing device and game controller” with a “flexible bridge section”. It then dropped the case and filed another claim with the US Trade Commission, which then began its own official investigation. Per 360Law, here’s how this lengthy episode ended:
Nintendo Co. Ltd. walked away victorious from consolidated inter parties reviews of a Gamevice Inc. mobile gaming patent, with the Patent Trial and Appeal Board invalidating all 19 claims Nintendo had challenged. In a pair of decisions issued Tuesday, the board determined that all claims were obvious in light of earlier patents.
