Nintendo sued, reasons unclear
A company by the name of Lonestar Inventions LP, ironically located in Texas, is asking for triple damages and an injunction against everybody’s best friend, Nintendo of America, using a technology that doesn’t belong to them. What’s the problem, exactly? Great question.
In 1993, one of Lonestar’s principals, Osman E. Akcasu, patented a structure for capacitors that took up less space on a semiconductor chip by using parallel conducting strips.
Ok, go on.
Lonestar claimed that the same design shows up in Nintendo products but didn’t identify any.
Phillip Bruns, a lawyer for the company, said it appears in the Wii projects.
If they didn’t wanna say, why even bother filing the lawsuit?
