TCW Podcast Episode 063 - Lawsuits for Nintendo

We delve into the legal hurdles that Nintendo faced during its rise to power in the '80s and '90s.  We see how they were able with the guidance of Howard Lincoln to weather the first of many lawsuits, and triumph!  In their long history they have used the court systems in the United States to their advantage; even wining a case almost everyone thought that they would lose.
