Nintendo Wins Patent Case Filed Against Nintendo 3DS and Other Hand-Held Systems

Nintendo Continues to Defend its Innovations Against Patent Lawsuits

Nintendo

REDMOND, Wash., July 21, 2015 – On July 17, 2015, Nintendo won a patent case in federal court in Oakland, California. Judge Saundra Armstrong found that eight of Nintendo’s popular hand-held systems, including the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo DSi, Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance systems, do not infringe a patent asserted against those products by Quintal Research Group, Inc. Judge Armstrong therefore dismissed the case. Quintal is a patent-assertion company run by the named inventor of the asserted patent, who is also a patent lawyer.

“We are very pleased to have this case dismissed,” said Devon Pritchard, Nintendo of America’s General Counsel and Senior Vice President of Business Affairs. “The result in this case continues to prove that Nintendo will vigorously defend its innovations against patent lawsuits and will not pay to settle cases simply to avoid litigation. Nintendo continues to support patent reform efforts that reduce the unnecessary and inefficient burden cases like this one place on technology companies in the United States.”

Satoru Iwata, president and CEO of Nintendo, died on Saturday at the age of 55.

Nintendo


Nintendo said in a brief press release issued on Monday Japan time that Iwata's death was related to a bile duct growth, a medical condition which has kept him from traveling outside of Japan in recent years.

The statement reads:

Nintendo Co., Ltd. deeply regrets to announce that President Satoru Iwata passed away on July 11, 2015 due to a bile duct growth.

Satoru Iwata, president and CEO of Nintendo

Iwata began his career in video games at HAL Laboratory as a programmer in the '80s, later working his way up the ranks at Nintendo and eventually succeeding longtime president Hiroshi Yamauchi in 2002.

Satoru Iwata, president and CEO of Nintendo

Details in this .pdf www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/pdf/2015/150713e.pdf

In his time as President, Iwata oversaw some of the strongest (Wii, DS) and weakest (GameCube, Wii U) periods in Nintendo’s history as a video game company. In recent times, he developed almost cult status as the host of the Nintendo Direct programs.

An immensely popular figure both within the industry and with Nintendo fans, he will be sorely missed.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Iwata.
