A patent infringement lawsuit brought against Nintendo over parental control technology has been dismissed.
According to a statement issued by Nintendo, Judge Manuel Real of the US District Court of Los Angeles granted Nintendo's motion for summary judgment of non-infringement on June 8.
"We are very pleased with the Court's decision," said Nintendo of America senior vice president of legal and general counsel Rick Flamm.
"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."
The patent in question - US Patent 4,930,158, "Selective video playing system" - was filed by Guardian Media in 1988. It is essentially technology created for the sake of parental control, allowing a user to block objectionable content from being accessible.
Guardian's case against Nintendo is part of a larger suit against several companies that employ similar tech.
