    Every time a company starts to become popular or profitable, some US company sues them. Copyright infringement is a very difficult thing to prove, and especially with the first one which seems more IP only. The second one is difficult to say because I don't know what the IP is from the company and what the actual physical layout of the wiimote is (and I don't know how you can patent the use of parallel capacitors with a conductor strip)

    calm yourself - this is old news and nothing new has come from it.

    There was a topic on this last year, so if you searched first you might of found it.

    As for the updated news, well it doesn't tell us anything new does it.

    Look how long it took for Sony to get done for their theft of the rumble technology in their controller - bloody years!

    Meanwhile, on the subject of Frivilous Lawsuits over bad patents, you have infringed on my patent on the use of consecutive letters to imply content. I recommend you cease and desist, or I shall file suit in the court of Raving Loonies who think they can scam money out of large corporations.

    American patent law needs a stab in the face almost as badly as our Copyright laws...

    Sane, reasonable person rule says, "Dur, you never actually made this, and your patent design doesn't actually produce a working object, nor does it actually use the same system to track location or communicate. Final verdict, the two items have ONLY SUPERFICIAL SIMILARITY. You own Nintendo Court costs."

    Now Trading 1st, 3rd, & 4th gen starters, Phione, Rotom, Porygon, Dratini, Kecleon, Feebas, Castform, Tyrogue, and anything else I can breed.
