Lodsys sues iPhone developers

Here's another follow-up to Lodsys going after Apple (and Google) for in-app purchases. Ars Technica reports that Lodsys has now filed patent infringement lawsuits against 7 developers of Apple's iOS (iPhone/iPad). Also reported on Patently-O.

Lodsys claims that "software" patents 7,620,565 and 7,222,078 were used by the developers without their consent. As a reminder, these patents cover examples like you download a "demo" (usually with limited functionality) and later choose to purchase the full version of the app.
