Lodsys Thumps Its Chest

According to CNET’s blog post about Lodsys Group: “The nonpracticing entity, which went after app makers on Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android, and other technology platforms for infringing on its patents, said in a blog post this evening that the U.S. Patent Office has confirmed the validity of one of its patent’s key claims, effectively hobbling Google’s effort to have the patent invalidated.”

The report further states “The company, which owns intellectual property but doesn’t make any real products, also claimed in a separate blog post that its effort to license the in-app purchase patent to third parties has gained momentum, with 80 percent of the new agreements being achieved without litigation.”

Take that Apple and Google. Lodsys Group is on the march!
