Taiwanese Firms Ordered to Pay Nintendo $24 Million: Two Taiwanese companies have been ordered to pay Nintendo of America Inc. more than $24 million in damages for selling counterfeit Nintendo video game cartridges, the company said. U.S. District Judge James Battin ruled in a case in Arizona that the two companies, their U.S. subsidiary and four Taiwanese citizens wrongfully infringed U.S. trademarks and at least 28 U.S. copyright registrations of Nintendo. The defendants were NTDEC and Nintendo Electronic Co., which Nintendo claimed was an unlawful use of its brand name.
