    Nintendo Sued

    Nintendo has been sued by Interlink Electronics for copyright infringement, Apparently Nintendo pointing functionalities of the Wiimote isn't as original that Nintendo claimed it to be.

    Gaming blog Kotaku accuses Nintendo of infringing on a patent filed previously by Interlink Electronics. The court filing claims that Interlink Electronics has suffered "loss of reasonable royalties, reduced sales and/or lost profits as a result of the infringing activities of" Nintendo.

    The complaint demands that Nintendo be enjoined and restrained from further infringing on the patent, presumably by taking the Wii off the market. Furthermore, the filing demands that the court order Nintendo to pay Interlink three times the assessed damages, including prejudgment interests and attorney fees. Additionally, the plaintiff is demanding a jury trial of any and all issues pertaining to the case.

    IE will lose. Nintendo takes out copy rights far in advance, and they research their competition heavily. If Interlink Electronics dares take Nintendo to court, they'll be the ones who flip the bill. I'm very serious, Nintendo knows how to apply for a copy right, there is no legal ground here.

    I mean Nintendo researches everyone in the same field before applying their copy right.

    If Nintendo were to lose, and force to take it off the market...You have any idea how much value the Wii would have then? It would skyrocket and become a collectors item.

    If they were fearful that there was any way they'd loose, they would just settle before pulling the Wii. This kind of stuff is very common.
