Nintendo wins patent lawsuit again, this time over Wii MotionPlus

nintendoNintendo has some good lawyers.

For the second time in as many months, the video game giant escaped another patent lawsuit.

This time it was over the company’s Wii MotionPlus accessory. Triton had accused Nintendo of infringing on one of its patents, but a federal judge in Seattle dismissed the case.

“We feel vindicated by the court’s ruling,” Richard Medway, Nintendo of America’s deputy general counsel, said in a statement. “Nintendo’s track record demonstrates that we vigorously defend patent lawsuits, like the Triton lawsuit, when we believe that we have not infringed another party’s patent. Consumers respect Nintendo because we develop unique and innovative products, and because we respect the intellectual property rights of other.”

In April, Nintendo won a court appeal over Wii motion-tracking patents held by Ohio-based Motiva LLC. Nintendo of America is based in Redmond.

    It seems like a pretty easy case to handle. Perhaps potential lawsuits from Sony and Nintendo aren’t being given because they want to see if they can make more money from the Ouya’s potential success?
