Subject: Nyko & Nintendo Settle Lawsuit
Nyko has settled with Nintendo over a patent infringement suit.  Nyko's wireless Nunchuk controller will remain on sale after a few design changes to make it ever so slightly less patent-infringy.

Nintendo of America's president says "We are pleased to have resolved this dispute,"

So are Nyko, I'll bet.

Found on Gamasutra.  Also, over on Patent Arcade, there's some detail on the Nintendo Nunchuk patent.

Quote by Patent Arcade:
At issue in this case, I am sure, will be to what extent the shape of the controller is to make the controller contoured to fit comfortably in a user's hand, i.e., has function, versus what portion of the design is merely aesthetic.

Finally, some images stolen from CNet:
