Default Apple Jumps Into the Lodsys Lawsuit Fray

"There's been a lot of movement on the Lodsys front this week, though it's largely been flying under the radar thanks to WWDC. Florian Mueller of Fosspatents, however, has done a stellar job of keeping us up to speed with the latest developments - namely an action to invalidate Lodsys' patent portfolio and Apple attempting to intervene as a party to Lodsys' suit against 7 iOS developers."

Basically Apple is saying since the developers work under a license from Apple, and Apple has an agreement with Lodsys, that Apple should be allowed to be involved in this suit. I'm sure that the developers are hopeful it will be allowed, since Apple obviously has some deep pockets and can battle this patent troll more effectively than they ever could. This will be an interesting one to watch, although it certainly is complicated.
