Legal "App developers are withdrawing their products for sale from the US versions of Apple's App Store and Google's Android Market for fear of being sued by companies which own software patents - just as a Mumbai-based company has made a wide-ranging claim against Microsoft, Apple, Google, Yahoo and a number of other companies over Twitter-style feeds, for which it claims it has applied for a patent."

I also feel the article is blowing things up. On the other hand, I really do hope that more developers leave the US market. And I really do hope that this hurts the US. Even though I realise this will only hurt the US if bigger players move away from the US market, which is highly unlikely.
