Nintendo Sued Again, This Time Over Wii Fit

That damn Wii Fit. Always getting itself into trouble. If it's not turning people into sex addicts, it's attracting lawsuits from companies that make interactive fitness equipment.

IA Labs, based in Potomac, Maryland, is suing Nintendo over Wii Fit, claiming it has been "irreparably harmed" by Nintendo's alleged "continued infringement" of patents IA says it holds.

Those patents are for a "Computer interactive isometric exercise system and method for operatively interconnecting the exercise system to a computer system for use as a peripheral" and "Force measurement system for an isometric exercise device."

Interestingly, IA also claim that, three years ago, it had held talks with Nintendo about licensing its technology to the Japanese publisher.

    Hmmm this actually sounds legit... that's a rare thing! But then that controller one was legit aswell seeing that actually won at first, then Nintendo appealed.

      But it's been years since the highly publicised game came out... why sue after all of this time?
