Nintendo once again finds itself the target of a patent infringement case.
As Cnet reports, Maryland-based Hillcrest Labs alleges that the Wii Remote infringes on Hillcrest’s patents for a motion-sensitive remote control device known as The Loop. A Hillcrest press release says in part:
While Hillcrest Labs has a great deal of respect for Nintendo and the Wii, Hillcrest Labs believes that Nintendo is in clear violation of its patents and has taken this action to protect its intellectual property rights.
GamesLaw has court documents available.
