N.D. Tex. Jury: Nintendo Must Pay $10.1 Million For Infringing ILife’s Patent

On August 31, 2017, a jury in Chief Judge Lynn’s court found that Nintendo infringed a patent held by iLife Technologies through the sale of Nintendo’s Wii and Wii U video game systems and software, and that Nintendo failed to prove that the patent is invalid. (Verdict form available here.) For damages, the jury awarded $10,100,000 in a lump sum reasonable royalty. Rolling Stone wrote an article about the case (available here). The article indicates that Nintendo plans to raise infringement and invalidity with post-trial motions and, if unsuccessful before the district court, on appeal.
