Nintendo Being Sued by Secure Axcess for Patent Infringement

By   /   Apr 17, 2014

Nintendo is being sued by Secure Axcess for the Patent Infringement, again.

In case you didn’t know, Secure Axcess is dedicated to stop the wide spread of information on the internet for their clients and their services include “Patent Evaluation” which they check for:

Analysis of patent scope, field(s) of use, breadth of claims, landscape of prior art and potential infringement.

The patent that is being asked into question was issued more than 10 years ago in 2003 and it was for:

A computer providing multiple display capability where one display presents the current document and another display may show a true display of a previously opened document.

Secure Axcess are looking to get costs, compensation damages and some other advantages because some of the companies were selling the Wii U console without the licenses or authorization.

This is the second time Nintendo has been sued by Secure Axcess, last time they accused Nintendo for the same patent, but that was for the other platforms of the company (Nintendo DS, DS Lite, DSi, 3DS, and 3DS XL).

The complaint reads:

The defendants are accused of infringing on U.S. Patent No. 6,522,309 issued Feb. 18, 2003, for a Multiscreen Personal Computer Display Method and Apparatus. The alleged infringement occurs by the defendants selling Nintendo’s Wii U Console System without license or authorization.

The case has been assigned to Judge Rodney Gilstrap.
