The Hobo writes: CBC news is reporting that a company called Interlink Electronics is suing Nintendo over its Wii controller, alleging infringement of its patent titled "Trigger operated electronic device". From the article, "According to the documents filed with the court, Interlink claims that Nintendo's "infringement of the patent is unlawful and willful [sic] and will continue" unless the court prevents it from doing so." The company is asking for damages, costs, and an order that Nintendo stop its alleged infringing uses. Nintendo was unaware of the lawsuit and could not provide an immediate comment.
