    Default Nintendo lost the Court Case

    http://www.joystiq.com/2013/03/13/ni...-infringement/


    A federal jury has found Nintendo guilty of infringing on the 3D display patent of Seijiro Tomita of Tomita Technologies, awarding Tomita $30.2 million in damages.

    Tomita first filed the lawsuit back in 2011 his patent for "technology relating to displaying stereoscopic images on-screen for viewing with the naked eye, i.e., without utilizing glasses or other devices" was originally filed in 2003 and granted in 2008.

    Poor Nintendo. They should have worn glasses and saved $30mil.

    I've seen where Nintendo has already stated they seriously doubt it will hold up in appeals court.

    That's a stupid reason to hate people. What if you worked for Tomita, put years in research for 3D screens, and then had Nintendo break out a new device with your technology and get nothing for it? You'd be celebrating pretty hard with that bonus cheque you're about to get from that 30 million now aren't you.

    You're why I hate people.
