Nintendo Wins Appeal: Creative Kingdoms Patents Invalid

Today the federal appeals court confirmed Nintendo’s win in a patent infringement case brought at the International Trade Commission by Creative Kingdoms. The court affirmed earlier findings by the ITC that Creative Kingdoms’ patents are invalid and should not have been issued because Creative Kingdoms tried to claim more than the company invented. Creative Kingdoms had asked the ITC to block importation of Nintendo’s Wii and Wii U systems.

“We are pleased with the court’s determination,” said Richard Medway, Nintendo of America’s vice president and deputy general counsel. “Nintendo’s track record demonstrates that we vigorously defend patent lawsuits, particularly when the patents are being stretched beyond the inventors’ ideas. Nintendo continues to develop unique and innovative products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others.”

      Especially patents that are just there just to keep great inventions from being made & used by the masses.

    Splatoon looks not good but i will check reviews when that game will release. I want Nintendo to work on a 18+ FPS Game

      1. Yeah Nintendo produced games are more colourful, with a memorable cast of characters and letting their creativity run wild…:)

  2. See? Another company trying to BS sue Nintendo’s money that they never earned nor even try to deserve. I knew the world is after Nintendo because they have the money and high success rate which makes them seemingly an easy target.
