This is a curious PR we have just received. It is Nintendo announced that they have won the patent demand that IA Labs CA presented against them for Wii Fit software and Wii Balance Board.

Here is the official press release note for you to read.

Nintendo Prevails in Maryland Patent Suit

U.S. District Court Judge Says No Need for Jury Trial
For the third consecutive time this year, Nintendo has prevailed in a patent litigation in the U.S. A Maryland U.S. District Court judge has summarily dismissed a patent infringement lawsuit against Nintendo brought by IA Labs CA, LLC. IA Labs had alleged that the Wii Balance Board accessory and Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus software infringed on one of its patents (U.S. Patent No. 7,121,982).

“Nintendo has a passionate tradition of developing innovative products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others. We vigorously defend patent lawsuits when we firmly believe that we have not infringed another party’s patent. We refuse to succumb to patent trolls,” said Rick Flamm, Nintendo of America’s senior vice president of Legal & General Counsel.

Another victory for Nintendo.
