Legal This is certainly worth a meagre +1 in my book: patent troll Lodsys has actually taken the time to answer some of the concerns on the web regarding its legal threats to several small-time iOS developers. There's some interesting stuff in there.

Member since:

........It's another lawsuit they will likely lose. Just like they lost their lawsuit against e-machines when e-machines produced a colored translucent computer, which Apple sued because it somewhat resembled the original iMac with the colored cases.

You could be forgiven for just making a simple mistake....

Apple lost of course, and the judge told them that you can't patent a fashion trend, and that's basically what the demand for colored computers was.

.... but then you go and spoil it all by saying something stupid....
