Nintendo Loses Glasses-Free 3D Patent Infringement Lawsuit

Posted on Thursday, March 14 @ 09:45:00 PST by Alex_Osborn


The Big N will be made to pay the hefty cost of patent infringement, as decided by a federal jury on the glasses-free 3D technology included within the Nintendo 3DS.

According to Reuters, the technology wasinvented by a former Sony employee named Seijiro Tomita who will now be awarded $30.2 million in damages. Nintendo's attorney argued that the 3DS doesn't make use of the important aspects of the patent.

The company released the following statement toIGNon the matter:
A jury awarded $30.2 million in damages to Tomita Technologies in a patent infringement lawsuit brought by Tomita against Nintendo. The Tomita patent did not relate to the 3D games playable on the Nintendo 3DS. The trial was held in U.S. District Court in New York before Judge Jed Rakoff.

Nintendo is confident that the result will be set aside. The jury's verdict will not impact Nintendo's continued sales in the United States of its highly acclaimed line of video game hardware, software and accessories, including the Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo has a long history of developing innovative products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others.


First the Wii U troubles and now this? When it rains, it pours.
