nathanielinbrazil writes “Microsoft has sued a British manufacturer over the infringement of four of its patents for Xbox game controllers. The suit was filed in Seattle, Washington, and Datel has yet to response. Datel is a United Kingdom company with a US unit and has produced two specific controllers — the TurboFire and WildFire — that Microsoft wants stopped.” The infringing patents are over “portions of a gaming controller” and “portion of a gaming input device having an illuminated region.”
