Nintendo Wins "MariCar" Lawsuit with Payment of 50 Million Yen in Compensation

On December 25, 2020, the Supreme Court of Japan dismissed an appeal by the company MariCar (now named Mari Mobility Development Inc.) in the lawsuit which Nintendo had filed for violation of the Unfair Competition Prevention Act and infringement of copyright. The company MariCar had lent costumes of Nintendo game characters to users of go-karts on public roads. As a result of this dismissal, the lawsuit was decided in favor of Nintendo.
In 2018, the Tokyo District Court at the first trial ruled in favor of Nintendo, and ordered Mari Mobility Development Inc. to pay 10 million yen and stop acts of unfair competition.
Mari Mobility Development Inc. filed an appeal in the Intellectual Property High Court against the first trial decision. Nintendo was dissatisfied that a part of Nintendo's complaint was not accepted in the decision, and also filed an appeal with a claim for compensation increased up to 50 million yen.
The Intellectual Property High Court at the second trial ordered Mari Mobility Development Inc. to pay the total sum of the compensation which Nintendo claimed for and to stop acts of unfair competition by Mari Mobility Development Inc.
