Philips Ends Patent Disputes Against Nintendo, Both Companies Settle Outside of Court

on December 2, 2014 7:23 AM

Earlier this year Philips brought several charges of patent-infringement to Nintendo concerning motion-tracking technology, and even won a patent-infringement case in the UK. Today, however, both companies have decided to settle the matter outside of court.

Philips stated that the two companies have sealed a deal to cross-license portions of each other’s patent portfolios and that it would terminate patent infringement proceedings against Nintendo in Germany, Britain, France and the United States.

No other details on the case have been released by Philips.
