Nintendo Patent Infringement Case Has Been Overturned


This is an update to a legal case from 2013 in which Nintendo was found guilty of infringing on patents by the company Tomita Technologies International Ltd.

The appointed Judge ruled that Nintendo must pay 1.82% on the wholesale of every 3DS sold (This essentially being the MSRP, or the price that the 3DS is sold for at retail). When combined with damages this total loss equates to ~200 million dollars to over 230 million.

The latest update shows that Nintendo won the case with the American court finding Nintendo not guilty of infringement potentially saving Nintendo millions.
