Valve Loses Controller Patent Lawsuit

Law.com has the results of the patent infringement lawsuit over the Steam Controller mentioned last week (thanks VGC). Word is the jury ruled in favor of the plaintiff, and Valve is on the hook to pay them $4 million:
The number is on the low end of the damages range sought by Ironburg Inventions, but jurors also found Valve Corp.'s infringement was willful, raising the possibility of enhancements. Valve had argued there was no infringement.

The intellectual property holding company for video came controller maker SCUF Gaming has won a $4 million verdict in the nation’s first all-virtual patent infringement jury trial.

Ah, so the legal system now operates on hearsay... that's awesome for patent trolls.
Not a patent troll.
They make controllers.

Does it matter who makes the boulder roll? SCUF is not a patent troll, but they just opened the flood-gates with this for actual patent trolls
I'm sorry, but the patent troll floodgate has been open for a long time.
Obligatory IANAL, are you?
