Apple Files Motion to Intervene in Lodsys Lawsuits Against Developers

Nine days after Lodsys sued seven small iOS developers in the Eastern District of Texas, Apple filed a motion to intervene in the proceedings, according to FOSSPatents.

Apple notes that the sued app developers are "are individuals or small entities with far fewer resources than Apple and [...] lack the technical information, ability, and incentive to adequately protect Apple's rights under its license agreement."

If Apple is allowed to participate as an intervenor, it has already submitted its answer to the complaint, and its counterclaim.

Apple plans to fight Lodsys on the basis that its developers are authorized to use Lodsys patents under their license agreement.
