Nintendo Wins Yet Another Patent Case

Wii Games 1In May of 2013 two groups known as Ithaca Ventures and Ithaca Development sued Nintendo saying that they Balance Board, the popular Wii Fit peripheral, infringed on the groups’ patents. Nintendo responded saying that the suit had no merit.

A similar case between the groups forced the group to withdraw the case here in the US as a German court found the patents did not cover the Wii Balance Board. Ithaca was forced to pay Nintendo’s legal fees as the case had no merit.
