Snowball effect on Nintendo.

Sharp made the screen but the way Nintendo implemented it was ultimately what infringed on the patent.

Like a previous poster stated, this was not a criminal charge.. the guy wanted compensation for his patent being used which Nintendo did not follow on.

Nintendo does not own the patent either, someone DOES own it however. If not for that guy, Nintendo would be sued eventually. Because they are using technology without a liscense for it. Sharp has a liscense to manufacture the tech, but no one has a license in how its implemented.

Nintendo argues that his case is invalid because they didn't infringe on key aspects of the patent. Terrible argument, the tech itself is the key aspect of the patent, Nintendo most likely did infringe on something in particular in the patent but none of us know what exactly it was, so there really isn't anything for us to talk about.

Nintendo infringed in a specific part of the patent that was not the screen itself that much is certain. Now they pay the price.

Wow, looks like it's very easy to pretend a big company is stealing from you and win. Shameless.

I knew this was gonna happen. i just had that "feeling" the whole time! -_-. just pay the guy one huge lump sum of money and move on. i'm not looking forward at all to losing 3D in future consoles and games over some idiot.


Hell Nintendo will make that money back with Pokemon X/Y

Seems like Nintendo is getting sued for every new console they spit out and lose them. The world has it out for Nintendo, while Sony is making Nintendo rip offs a few years later that no one really cares...
