Nintendo wins yet another patent infringement case

Majed Athab

Nintendo seems to be on a streak as of late, laying down a good old Mario stomp over any patent infringement case thrown its way. Back in March, Nintendo won a case filed in Texas by Fenner Investments Ltd, and now Nintendo has won another one filed by Guardian Media Technologies, Ltd. On June 8th, only six months after the lawsuit was filed in California, Judge Manuel Real ruled in favor of Nintendo and dismissed the case.

Nintendo's VP of legal and general counsel, Rick Flamm, is jovial over the court's decision. He said that the case was dismissed because Nintendo convinced the court that "Guardian's patent had nothing to do with Nintendo's products." Mr. Flamm must be keeping one of those glittery stars in his pocket, because it looks like Nintendo's legal game is invincible.
