As previously discussed, Apple developers allegedly received cease and desist letters from Lodsys based on the use of in-app applications. Now, Lodsys appears to have taken it to the next level by allegedly suing several developers for patent infringement in the ever popular Eastern District of Texas. Read what appears to be a copy of the Complaint. It will be interesting to see Apple’s reaction and/or next steps.
In furtherance of my earlier post, Apple has reportedly stepped up to defend its developers. Read a recent update on the state of events as well as the letter allegedly sent by Apple to Lodsys.
