In 2017, Nintendo lost a patent lawsuit with Texas-based tech company iLife Technologies Inc. who claimed that the Wii, Wii Remote, and Wii U infringed on their patents. The suit filed by iLife back in 2013 claimed that Nintendo had infringed on their patents which include devices that "contain systems or methods for body movement detection, body movement evaluation, body movement analysis, receiving body movement signals, analyzing body movement signals, responding to body movement signals, and remotely monitoring body movement signals."
The court decided that Nintendo had breached one of their patents and was ordered to pay iLife $10.1 million, less than what they originally wanted which was $150 million. Nintendo is currently seeking to appeal the decision.
