Judge halves $30.2 million infringement award against Nintendo

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Wednesday ruled that inventor Seijiro Tomita can take half the $30.2 million in damages awarded him after a jury found Nintendo Co infringed one of his patents, or risk getting nothing.

The story is too old to be commented.

"Rakoff noted that evidence at the trial showed Nintendo's 3DS console is not profitable, and the vast majority of games designed for it do not use technology covered by Tomita's patent."

Oh, this will end well...

$15.1M, still not a bad piece of pocket money but I suppose it's the principle of the matter.
