Regardless of the facts, this shows how @$@$ing out of date the US Patent system is. When someone can sue a company for an idea he thought of WITH POTENTIALLY NO ACTUAL TECHNICAL DATA, you know something's @$@$ing wrong with the law.

Is it any wonder the US is well on its way to becoming a third world nation? I mean, you know your country sucks when stuff like this is common occurrence, your health care system is entirely privatized and designed to kill people by Heart Attack From Seeing The Bill (tm), corperations have more power than the @%$@ing government, and more than half the country insists that changing things to match the world's leaders in quality of life is "ZOMG COMMUNISM BLARHARAGH". I'm absolutely astonished that the US hasn't collapsed like Rome yet, but I'm pretty sure that'll happen soon enough if Republicans continue arguing to bankrupt the entire world just to stroke their @$#$ing capitalist egos :/

EDIT: Ought to note that Obama is neither the cause nor the problem to this. I blame the Republican scum who prevent any progress from being made in the name of the Holy Right (tm).


What a nut.

That pretty much wraps it up, when I read about this case I thought to myself, there's no way they could get away with suing them.

Also does no one know about the Classic Controller lawsuit against Nintendo, Nintendo initially lost and was ordered to stop selling classic controllers, but on appeal it was overturned.

While you guys are STILL sounding the war drums for Nintendo, have you ever stopped to think that all these lawsuits plaguing Nintendo is saying something about them? And it isn't good.

You don't see the other guys getting crucified as such....

All the lawsuits prove that Nintendo is a big target for trolls
And that Nintendo fights the lawsuits Anascape the people behind the classic controller lawsuit also sued Microsoft, but unlike Nintendo, Microsoft settled out of court. They never sued Sony though

Too bad only people like you all ever think such a thing is true. Still convinced Nintendo never does any wrong, right?

Heh, Nintendo has to pay up THIS time!

Except you kinda do in the tech industry. Take the Apple vs. Samsung lawsuits for example. That is still ongoing even though it has been quite sometime. Or Google, who has now started to try to come up with a plan to end all of their lawsuits and lawsuits in the tech industry. http://bgr.com/2013/03/12/google-patent-infringement-lawsuits-371633/
Or Sony cameras (http://www.theverge.com/2013/2/14/3987800/red-files-lawsuit-against-sony-over-video-compression-patents).

Or Microsoft: http://searchengineland.com/microsoft-sued-by-company-that-won-patent-lawsuit-against-google-in-2012-147075

In fact, lawsuits of this type in this industry seem to be commonplace and near the point of rampant. Now that is not to say that there is no validity in these lawsuits, but in my opinion the validity of these kind of lawsuits is definitely lowered due to how common they are.
