Nintendo wins patent case filed against 3DS and other handheld systems
Nintendo has announced that the company has come out victorious in another patent case. Quintal Research Group, Inc. had filed a lawsuit against Nintendo with the assertion that the 3DS, DSi, DS, Game Boy Advance, and four other systems infringed a patent. On July 17, Judge Armstrong dismissed the case after determining that this was not so.
Devon Pritchard, Nintendo of America’s General Counsel and Senior Vice President of Business Affairs, said of today’s news:
“We are very pleased to have this case dismissed. The result in this case continues to prove that Nintendo will vigorously defend its innovations against patent lawsuits and will not pay to settle cases simply to avoid litigation. Nintendo continues to support patent reform efforts that reduce the unnecessary and inefficient burden cases like this one place on technology companies in the United States.”
