∞ Apple files motion to intervene in Lodsys patent case

Patent troll Lodsys is going after seven independent iOS developers, claiming that they’re in violation of its patents. Now Apple has filed a motion to intervene in the case, according to the FOSS Patents blog.

Apple claims the developers Lodsys is suing lack the resources Apple has, along with the technical information to “adequately protect Apple’s rights under its license agreement.” To recap, Apple says that it has licensed Lodsys patents and that its developers are free to use them. Lodsys disagrees.
