In February 2009, Wall Wireless, LLC initiated a patent infringement case against Nintendo. But today, Nintendo announced that the court dismissed the case.
Nowhere in the article did it say WHAT the infringement was... Betting it was some really obscure napkin sketch for a device to smell distant objects, probably deemed void by the sweat smudges...
Added an alt source that actually mentions it. Although it's ridiculously vague (probably why it was thrown out).
No real surprise there. Shouldn't there be a law against patent trolling like this?
There are people who PURPOSELY file vague patents ALL DAY EVERY DAY. Eventually it's going to catch up to us or them and somebody is going to have to deal with it because it's getting a little stupid now. Shysters are the worst.
One down, ∞ to go. Let's face it, people are lining up to have a go at them.
I can understand what a large portion of Nintendo's operating cost is going towards.. *should have been a lawyer*
Good. Can't stand patent trolls.
