Technology company Philips has allegedly filed a complaint against Nintendo stating that the latter has infringed on two Philips patents in the U.S., according to a document on Scribd.

According to the alleged complaint, which was posted on a Neogaf forum, the patents claim "protection for an interactive system for which a user can remotely control devices in an intuitive manner." These patents supposedly prevent the production, use, sale or import of "human-computer interaction systems" in the judicial district of Delaware.

Philips' complaint states that the Wii, Wii U and related equipment make use of technology protected under these patents. Section 16 of the complaint states that Nintendo possibly infringed on one of the patents, patent '379, deliberately. The Japanese company was aware of the infringement no later than Dec. 16, 2011, according to the document.

Philips is supposedly asking for compensation of up to three time the damages caused by Nintendo's alleged infringements, in accordance with 35 U.S. Code, which states that the court may allow up to that amount.
