Anascape, the company that claims that they “invented” controller buttons (analog buttons on a remote control [which seems to only apply to game companies]), won another suit (filed in 2006) against Nintendo late 2007.

Recently, Nintendo was rejected a request to appeal by the US District Judge of Texas for the above case ruling that would force them to pay $21 million or risk of getting blocked from selling any WaveBirds (the wireless GameCube controllers), regular GameCube controllers and the Wii Classic Controller.

Nintendo is currently taking this to the Federal Circuit court, where they hope they can win.
