Nintendo sued over Wiimote

A Californian company called Interlink Electronics has launched a legal case against Nintendo over the Wiimote.

Interlink was granted a patent in February 2005 for a "trigger-operated electronic device" which the company claims is violated by the Wii remote.

You may be right in thinking the whole trigger issue isn't going to hold much water, but Interlink's patent also included a pointing sensor to check where the device was pointing. It's this part of the patent Nintendo might have more trouble defending itself against.

As usual in such cases the plaintiff wants cash and a ban on the Nintendo product.
