Back in 2017, Nintendo lost a court battle, where iLife Technologies took them to court, claiming that they originally had the patent for motion-sensing technology, and that the controllers used for the Nintendo Wii and Wii U both infringed upon them. Their patent was used for motion-sensing in the medical industry. iLife sought $144 million in damages, and after a jury deliberation, they were awarded a smaller sum of $10 million. Nintendo immediately filed for an appeal in court, and now, after two years, a verdict has been handed down. The federal courts in Dallas, Texas, have ruled that the patent was too vague and "impermissibly trying to cover the broad concept of using motion sensors to detect motion". With this ruling, the $10 million dollar fine against Nintendo has been thrown out, invalidating iLife's claims to the patent.
