    The Gamevice saga continues. Not content with losing in their infringement case last month, Gamevice dredged their patent claims against Nintendo up again, in hopes of actually winning this time around. After filing with the United States International Trade Commission, the USITC will be moving forward by investigating the claims made by Gamevice that Nintendo is infringing upon their patent of a tablet system with detachable controllers. Previously, the Patent Trial and Appeal board threw out Gamevice's case after investigation, but this latest announcement means that while the merit of the case itself hasn't been determined, a judge will still be assigned to investigate the validity of the claims, even though the US Patent and Trademark Office already ruled that devices that attach video game controllers to tablets is "unpatentable".

    If I knew these guys were patent trolls I would have never bought their stuff. I regret buying it anyway - have barely used it in the past 2 years since I bought it.

    I hope for Gamevice's bankruptcy by the end of all this.

    Keep your hold and strength, Gamevice!
    I'm with you til the end!

    Teach those assholes from Nintendo that they can't get away with whatever they want, give them a lesson from their own fucking legal medicine!

    This whole thing is silly. Many other companies have more blatant ripoff controller designs, so where are those lawsuits?

    im guessing they got a patent before thing be made unpatentable, sometimes they just kill a patent and make it legal for everyone for market growth and so on, becuase its like someone patented 30 years ago a videogame console that reads cds and then cds become mainstream media they just disable that patent and so on.
