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.

Stratoukos,

Yep, that's pretty much how patents work these days. Patents encourage this type of behavior, and those who don't play (because the system sucks all around) are the victims.
