Nintendo of America has announced that, on November 13th, the company won yet another patent case at California federal court.

It is the second time that that Nintendo has been victorious against patent-licensing companies Technology Properties Limited LLC, Phoenix Digital Solutions LLC and Patriot Scientific Corporation.

July 2012 saw Nintendo sued by the plaintiffs in California federal court and in the International Trade Commission (ITC). The ITC has already ruled in February 2014 that Nintendo did not infringe on the asserted patent, a decision that was not appealed.

They instead continued to fend their corner before the California federal court, however Nintendo has now won that case which ruled that they do not infringe on the asserted patent.

“We are very pleased with this decision, which again confirmed that Nintendo’s products do not infringe,” comments Nintendo of America’s director of litigation and compliance, Ajay Singh.

“It also confirms that Nintendo continues to develop unique and innovative products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others. Nintendo will defend its products and its innovations, even if it must do so multiple times in different places and over many years.”
