Legal Apple has responded to the recent patent threats again iOS application developers by Lodsys. Bruce Sewell, Apple's senior vice president and general counsel, sent a letter to Lodsys CEO Mark Small detailing why the threats are baseless. Apple claims they have a license to the patents in question, and that the iOS application developers are mere customers - not distributors.

Dear Lodsys,

Cut your crap or we'll sue you into oblivion.



Coming from one of the heavy-weight 300 pound gorillas in the room that right there can be quite helluva daunting.

I deeply dislike Apple and their behaviour generally and while I understand that they're doing this only to keep developers using their App Store I still applaud them for doing the right thing, even if not for the correct reasons.
