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.

What about industrial patents ? I don't know how much they last, and under which terms they work (do they imply a precise description of the patented product, like technical drawings or chemical formulas, or can you patent ideas and algorithms ? Is there a requirement of notability, or can you patent an iPod Touch's rounded corners ?)
