Upoint Laser is claiming they hold a patent covering the Wii's pointer!
This is not the first time Nintendo been sued over the Wii, first it was ThinkOptics, but now Upoint Laser is going patent-trolling!
Upoint Laser has decided to jump into the 'Let's Sue Nintendo' game, that ThinkOptics started a while ago.
In this case, Upoint claims patent 7,746,321 which covers "controlling movement of a computer display cursor based on a point-of-aim of a pointing device within an interaction region includes projecting an image of a computer display to create the interaction region." is the heart of the problem:
Upoint had this patent since 2005, but are still as the screenshots show below in the TESTING stage of their pointer!
Patent-Trolls, are they right or wrong to wait for years and then sued for damages once a company is successful?
