U.S. Jury Finds Nintendo Liable for Patent Infringement

In accordance with Reuters, ‘A federal jury in New York on Wednesday found that video game company Nintendo Co infringed an inventor’s 3-D display technology patent with its handheld 3DS videogame system.’ The inventor, Seijiro Tomita, was awarded $30.2 million in compensatory damages.

The patent relates to technology that Tomita developed for providing 3-D images without the need for 3-D glasses. He sued Nintendo and its U.S. unit in 2011 for patent infringement and was not present in the courtroom on Wednesday.
