It seems that the article was updated - allegedly the medical company didn't actually make threats?

Good to know it isn't only US companies which are totally dicks, even when human lives are involved.

1st local ordinance in Japan seeking 1 hour per day limit on video games passed.

The ordinance calls on households in the prefecture to aim for a limit of 60 minutes per day of video game time on school days for those aged under 18. There is no punishment for failing to abide by the guideline, but residents will be required to strive toward it as a responsibility.

Only in Japan could you pass an ordinance without punishment, and expect it to be followed.

A society (and legal system) interested in justice, and not slavishly following legal doctrines, would respond to this by acknowledging the fact that the patent was violated, dismiss any and all penalties for the duration of the pandemic, and explain that the only way that such actions would be punished is if the infringement continued after the pandemic or were used to avoid paying for available products while the means to pay for them were there.

Of course, western society is so screwed up the legal system will probably find for the plaintiffs if they sue and award millions in damages...
