    General Info
    The Nintendo Wii is a seventh-generation console released by Nintendo on November 19th, 2006. This console previously had the code name of 'Revolution' The Wii was originally priced at $250.00/179 but has recently seen a $50.00/33.22 price drop. The Wii currently dominates the Video game market as it has shipped over 67.25 Million units worldwide. Online services include Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, WiiConnect24 and Wii Shop Channel.



    Legal Issues
    -Interlink Electronics filed a patent-infringement lawsuit against Nintendo over the WiiMote's pointing feature.

    -Green Welling LLP (Law Firm) filed a class action lawsuit against Nintendo for its said 'defective' WiiMote wrist straps.

    -A Company called Lonestar Inventions based in Texas had also sued Nintendo claiming that Nintendo copied one of their patented capacitor designs which had been used in the Wii.

    -Hillcrest Laboratories Inc filed a complaint against Nintendo. This complaint stated that Nintendo's WiiMote infringed three of its patents and possibly a fourth. Hillcrest Inc looked for a ban on Nintendo Wii consoles imported into the United States. Fortunately, Nintendo and Hillcrest had reached an agreement.

    -Anascape Ltd also had filed a lawsuit against Nintendo for patent infringements. A ban had been issued on Nintendo preventing them from selling classic controllers in the USA. Nintendo is still free to sell these controllers in the USA as they are pending an appeal to the 'U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit'

    -The original trademark; The Wii Remote was initially rejected by USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) due to the term 'Remote's wide use.
