I call bullshit.

Even if Tomita planned on actually producing glasses free 3D technology, they wouldn't have implemented it in a handheld video game console. That is only something Nintendo would do.

No 'damage' has been done.

That's like attempting to sue someone for use of the remote because another company used it first. It just makes the person attempting to sue the company look like a bunch of greedy jackasses.

What? Really, Tomita? Don't do this. It really, really, seem like you don't even have the patent.

And why is this brought up barely now and not earlier? Seriously, as soon as someone does something successful, others claim that idea was there's first. I assume that we should be able to sue since we would think about glasses-free 3d when 3d was introduced and we should sue over how tomita stole our idea? Hopefully, nintendo wins this case, or better yet, should just be ignored.

That's dumb, since I know nothing more bout the legal system, I'll leave it at that.

Just looked at the patent.
One of the specs clearly shows that this technology was meant for a T.V.



I think they just jelly.

Nice find! If tomita still insists on suing, then whoever invented 3D should sue tomita for implementing their idea.

And THIS?

This right here?

This is why IP law has major issues, not only in the US, but worldwide.

As various forms of 3D technology increase in popularity, we're certain to see more of these 3D patent litigation actions ... whether they make sense or not.

well i think just the fact tat nintendo has a slider to ajust the 3d effect makes it so that Tomita Technologies patent is irrelevant
