Lodsys Offers To Pay $1,000 To Each Sued Developer If Apple’s Existing License Rights Apply

Posted Jun 1, 2011

Lodsys is very confident that the patent that they own does not apply to the licenses that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) claims to have in place to protect developers from a lawsuit by Lodsys. Lodsys sent patent infringement notices to over a dozen iOS and Android developers for the use of in-app purchases. Lodsys announced that they will reimburse any developer that they improperly targeted with $1,000 if Apple’s existing license rights apply to fully license the sued developers. [MacRumors]
