Guardian Media Technologies, Ltd. denied; Nintendo Wii-sponds.
REDMOND, Wash., June 11, 2009 – A U.S. District Court judge has summarily dismissed a patent-infringement lawsuit against Nintendo brought by Guardian Media Technologies, Ltd. Guardian had alleged that the Wii™ console infringed on one of its patents (U.S. Patent No. 4,930,158). Judge Manuel Real of the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles entered an order granting Nintendo's motion for summary judgment of non-infringement on June 8, 2009, less than six months after the lawsuit was filed.
"We are very pleased with the Court's decision," said Rick Flamm, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of Legal and general counsel. "Nintendo vigorously defends patent lawsuits. At the earliest stages of this case, Nintendo convinced the Court to dismiss this case as Guardian's patent had nothing to do with Nintendo's products."
