Submission + - Lodsys Files First Shot off Bow of iPhone Devs (arstechnica.com)

Dachannien writes: Patently-O and Ars Technica report that Lodsys has filed suit in the Eastern District of Texas against seven iPhone developers, asserting that the defendants are infringing two patents. Apple had previously indicated their belief that all iPhone developers are protected by a licensing agreement that Apple had made with the patents' former assignee, Intellectual Ventures. But Lodsys insists that the defendants are nonetheless liable for infringement. Still an open question is whether Apple will go beyond the mailing of strongly worded letters in defending third-party iPhone devs.
