In 2014, Nintendo lost a lawsuit brought against the company by Tomita Technologies. As a result, it was forced to pay Tomita 1.82 percent of the wholesale price on each 3DS unit sold. According to the lawsuit, Nintendo used the company’s 3D camera technology without permission.

According to Nikkei, the court has now overturned that decision. Nintendo will no longer have to pay any royalties on hardware sales. Further details remain scarce at this time, but Nintendo is understandably pleased with the court’s ruling. It is unknown if the company had paid any royalties yet, or if Tomita Technologies will be forced to pay them back.

In cases such as these, additional information can be hard to come by. Nintendojo will have more information if and when it becomes available.
