Journal Journal: Nintendo Wii Targeted in Patent Lawsuit

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that a Maryland start-up company has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Nintendo, alleging four patent violations - three in the Wiimote alone. "The start-up, Hillcrest Laboratories Inc. of Rockville, Md., filed a complaint Wednesday against Nintendo with the U.S. International Trade Commission, alleging that the Wii's motion-sensing controller and software infringes on Hillcrest patents related to the technologies. The filing asks the commission to halt the import of Wii consoles into the U.S. Hillcrest also filed a lawsuit in federal court in Greenbelt, Md., making similar allegations against Nintendo and seeking financial damages." I just hope Nintendo's already retained Phoenix Wright in this case I like to call "Wii would like to countersue."
