    This is the third time Nintendo dodges a patent demand from another company.

    Nintendo has prevailed in a patent litigation in the US. Judge has summarily dismissed a patent infringement lawsuit against Nintendo brought by IA Labs CA about Wii Fit and Wii Balance Board

    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.

    Another victory for Nintendo.

    Our thanks to 'Kaos2K' for posting another PR email we received at Maxconsole HQ

      Hehe... The patent trolls is only money greeding assholes which often doesent even do any research before they go to court. If they did, it wouldnt be a case in the first place.

      The whole patent thingy stinks anyway, because its all about money.

      The particulars of any claim does have its merits. Not everyone is simply out there to make easy money. Besides what's easy money in this day and age anyways. Theyw ouldn't have entertained the claim and gone to court if the claim was based out of no merit, why can't people understand that?

      On another note, I wonder how nintendo got out of it. Patents are becoming increasingly difficult these days, as there's so many little clauses which need to be specified very acutely.

      I guess they now have some people that know the patent stuff inside/out so they dont get trapped again like earlier.
