Lodsys is the company that has been sending letters to iOS developers threatening to sue them for patent infringement, over their use of Apple’s in-app payments. Developers have been waiting for Apple to react on their behalf, and last night the company finally responded. “Apple is undisputedly licensed to these patents and the Apple App Makers are protected by that license,” writes Bruce Sewell, Apple’s SVP and general counsel, in a letter to Lodsys. “There is no basis for Lodsys’ infringement allegations against Apple’s App Makers. Apple intends to share this letter and the information set out herein with its App Makers and is fully prepared to defend Apple’s license rights.” The letter calls for Lodsys to cease and desist from any further threats to developers. Lodsys had always admitted that Apple had a licence to use its relevant patents, but had claimed it did not cover developers. Source: MacWorld
