Nintendo Prevails In Wii Infringement Suit

The U.S. International Trade Commission has ruled in favor of Nintendo as part of a preliminary hearing, in a lawsuit filed by Dublin, Ohio-based company Motiva.
 
Last year, Motiva claimed that Nintendo’s Wii system infringed on its patents, explaining that it holds a patent for a “human movement measurement system” that uses wireless hand-held or body-worn controllers to track a user’s position in three-dimensional space.
 
However, a judge said that Nintendo has not infringed on any of Motiva’s patents, calling in favor of Nintendo as part of a preliminary ruling, reports Reuters.
 
The decision will be reviewed again by the ITC and a final decision will be made in March. The Commission can still choose to change the initial decision.
 
Nintendo General Counsel Rick Flamm said of the decision, “Nintendo has a long history of developing innovative products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others.”
 
“Nintendo is confident that, if the full International Trade Commission reviews the decision, it will reach the same outcome.”
