According to a recent filled suit, Philips wants to ban both the Wii and Wii U in America. They also want to ban the ability to import and export these devices. This is because there would be two patents that Nintendo has potentially infringed upon deliberately. According to Philips, Nintendo is aware of the patent, but has not been willing to take a license, and thus keep violating it. The first patent that is infringed, is about a way to follow a person's body, and use this as a way to input the actions in a 'virtual reality'. The second patent is regarding a mobile device, which has the possibilty to 'point', and is connected to a camera and allows this device to control another device based on movements. This would mean that the Wii and Wii U controllers infringe this patent. Philips is ultimately looking for a ban of both the Wii and Wii U in America and money back for the damages. How much Philips is asking is currently unknown. This would mean the Wii U, which already isn't doing very well, might get banned in America, thus making it impossible to have this device really succeed. What suprises me even more, is that while Philips is a Dutch companion, they only want the ban in America, and not in other countries. It is unknown if this will be changed or not.
