Lonestar sues Nintendo over capacitor
So, here's the deal: one day an exec over at Nintendo was hanging a clock in his home. in order to do this, he had to stand on the toilet, which obviously made the exec fall and hit his head. Upon waking to find a bruise, he came up with an incredible invention: the Wii capacitor. And, that's why the lawsuit filed by Texas-based company Lonestar Inventions is completely irrelevant.
Movie homages aside, the lawsuit is looking to be ridiculous. First of all, Lonestar didn't even contact Nintendo regarding the lawsuit, instead just filing it without the company's knowledge. Secondly, they haven't even said which capacitor it is that breach's their rights. Finally, the Austin-based offices of the company are located in a law office and have sued other notable companies, including Kodak, in the past.
