Gamevice wants the ITC to issue a "limited exclusion order and cease and desist orders", which would bar Nintendo from importing and selling the Switch in the United States. This lawsuit was reportedly thrown out in October, but since then, Gamevice has taken its case to the US International Trade Commission, which has launched an investigation into the matter.

According to a report by Engadget, Nintendo is investigated by the USITC after the Gamevice company initiated the relevant process, considering that the Switch hybrid console violates its patent related to accessories that fulfill control functions and that are inserted on both sides of a portable device, such as a smartphone or tablet.

The investigation was spurred on by Gamevice, the company that tried to sue Nintendo over the hybrid handheld console previous year.

You work so hard to give yourself the opportunity to play in the playoffs and it's disappointing to lose it", Lillard said. We can watch Game 4, through the comfortable lens of a 3-0 Pelicans lead, as a possible deciding night for series MVP.

I doubt that Gamevice is doing this as a way to be a Grinch and shut down all Switch sales in the USA, to direct all people that want a hybrid system to buy a Gamevice. The issue resides with its patents for detachable controllers that resemble the Switch's iconic Joy-Cons.

However, the USITC release notes that an investigation does not necessarily mean that the complaint itself has any merit or validity.

The problem is that a company called Gamevice is accusing Nintendo of infringing on its controller patents. However, their similarities have clearly led to a bit of a legal kerfuffle between Nintendo and Gamevice. As such, Gamevice is seeking a cease and desist order against Nintendo, which would require the cessation of Switch imports into the U.S. As you can imagine, this is bad news for the popular console. The USITC's Chief Administrative Law Judge will assign the case to one of the USITC's administrative law judges (ALJ), who will schedule and hold an evidentiary hearing. The USITC will announce a target date for the end of the investigation within 45 days.
