We haven’t heard much from Lodsys recently, the company who is suing a number of Apple’s iOS developers, including the popular Rovio Mobile and Google’s Android developers.
A while back Apple filed a motion with the courts to intervene on behalf of the Apple developers who are being sued by Lodsys, and now they have asked for a new court hearing in the cases.
Apple already has an agreement with Lodsys for the patents in question, but Lodsys says that this agreement doesn’t cover the Apple developers which they are suing.
Google’s still hasn’t really said much on the Lodsys patent cases against Android developers, I wonder if they are waiting to see what Apple is able to do to protect Apple developers before they step in.
