I can't know for sure but since the boomerang controller looked like half a steering wheel, Sony may have planned motion sensing long ago. The public rejected that controller without ever trying it though, so Sony had to rush and create the SIXAXIS.
Obvisouly the motion sensory wasnt made by nintendo. Have to remember Logitec uses sensory, yea so what if the N64 had an add on that did that. just remember its hard to steal somthing that accuser didnt invent. I remember when the Logitec wingman came out. and i dont remember people saying they stole it ^^ by all standards they should say Nintendo stole it from Microsoft! or by some other Computer.
-Patients are meant so no one else can use that same idea without permession from you. You could say that they can use it for a percentage. but that isnt the case here. You could sell them a design. lAn example a "generic" design. How do you think the industry works now days? compair it to the origional microwaves. If the person who made the microwave didnt allow other people to make them only one company would be here that could make it.

The patent was intended to grant a monopoly to anyone willing to take the entrepenurial risk of bringing a new porduct to market, and who was willing to publish the details such that competition could start after the patent expired.
Therefore to use a patent as intende,d you MUST BRING THE PRODUCT TO MARKET.
Selling the design is well within the spirit of patents. it's one way to brign the prodct to market. You do't ahve the resources to bringit to market, so you find someon who does, and you sell them the design.
But immersion went. "hmm everyone will want to use this for a lot of things.. lets patent them ALL, and soak everyone in the world with lisensing fees. muahahahaha"
they even say it on their web site "We own touch."
