Nintendo Prevails In Wii Patent Lawsuit

by Rainier on Oct. 22, 2012 @ 12:23 p.m. PDT

Nintendo manufactures and markets hardware and software for its Wii, NDS, 3DS, and Wii U systems. Since 1983, when it launched the NES, Nintendo has sold more than 3.1 billion video games and more than 526 million hardware units globally, including the Wii, Wii U, NDS, 3DS, as well as the Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, SNES, N64 and GameCube systems. It has also created industry icons that have become well-known, household names such as Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, Zelda and Pokémon.

Impulse abandoned the lawsuit following an unfavorable decision from Judge James Gwin of the U.S. District Court in Cleveland that undermined Impulse’s legal arguments.

“We are very pleased with the court’s ruling, which forced Impulse to walk away from this lawsuit,” said Richard Medway, Nintendo of America’s deputy general counsel. “Nintendo vigorously defends patent lawsuits when we firmly believe that we have not infringed another party’s patent. We will continue our tradition of developing unique and innovative products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others.”
