Another day means another lawsuit, when it comes to Nintendo. A court dispute, originally filed in May, saw the company go after Uberchips, a reseller of Team Xecuter's, as Nintendo puts it, "piracy tools". Nintendo filed seeking damages against Uberchip's owner, Tom Dilts Jr., who proceeded to take his website down following the initial court dispute, though he maintained his own innocence. Prior to May, Dilts had been selling the SX OS dongle through Uberchips.com, which Nintendo states facilitated piracy, and now, both he and Nintendo have come to a conclusion in a new joint filing. A permanent injunction has been ruled, and a settlement of $2 million in damages must be paid to Nintendo. A stipulation of the ruling also permanently bans Dilts from ever reselling any Team Xecuter products, and if any leftover chips remained, they must be seized and destroyed.
This matter came before the Court on the parties’ Consent to Entry of Judgment and Permanent Injunction, Dkt. No. 14, and Joint Motion for Entry of Final Judgment and Permanent Injunction, Dkt. No. 15. The Court enters judgment as follows: 1. Plaintiff is hereby awarded judgment against all Defendants, jointly and severally, in the amount of US$2,000,000.00. 2. Each party shall bear its own costs and attorneys’ fees.
