Nintendo has won a patent-infringement lawsuit, with US District Court Judge David Cercone dismissing the lawsuit in favour of the platform holder, reports Venturebeat.

Copper Innovations Group had sued Nintendo, claiming that the Wii and its remote-like controllers infringed its patent. Judge Cercone ruled that there was no need for a trial.

"We are very pleased with the court's decision," said Richard Medway, Nintendo of America's deputy general counsel. "Nintendo has a long history of developing innovative products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others. We also vigorously defend patent lawsuits when we firmly believe that we have not infringed another party's patent, despite the risks that this policy entails."
