Nintendo Prevails in ITC Case Involving Nintendo 3DS
REDMOND, Wash. --(Business Wire)--
Nintendo has won a patent infringement case at the International Trade
Commission. The case was brought by Technology Properties Limited LLC,
Phoenix Digital Solutions LLC and Patriot (News - Alert) Scientific Corporation, all of
which are patent-licensing companies. The commission confirmed that the Nintendo
3DS and Nintendo DSi systems do not infringe the asserted patent.
"We are very pleased with the commission's determination, which
confirmed the judge's finding that Nintendo's products do not infringe
the asserted patent," said Richard Medway, Nintendo of America's vice
president and deputy general counsel. "Nintendo's track record
demonstrates that we vigorously defend patent lawsuits, including cases
in the ITC, when we believe we have not infringed another party's
patent. Nintendo continues to develop unique and innovative products
while respecting the intellectual property rights of others."
