Federal Circuit Court Vindicates Nintendo in ITC Patent Dispute Nintendo Did Not Infringe Motiva’s Patents Business Wire REDMOND, Wash. -- May 13, 2013 The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit upheld Nintendo’s victory in a patent infringement case brought by Motiva, LLC against Nintendo at the International Trade Commission. The Court of Appeals agreed with the ITC that Motiva had failed to satisfy the agency’s domestic industry requirement. The ITC had also ruled that Nintendo did not infringe Motiva’s patents. “We are very pleased with this result. The court confirmed that Motiva’s sole activity, litigation against Nintendo, did not satisfy the ITC’s domestic industry requirement,” said Richard Medway, Nintendo of America’s deputy general counsel. “Nintendo has a passionate tradition of developing innovative products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others. We vigorously defend patent lawsuits when we firmly believe that we have not infringed another party’s patent.” For more information about Nintendo, visit http://www.nintendo.com.
