Apple green-lighted to intervene in Lodsys lawsuit against iOS developers

After nearly a year of waiting, a federal judge has granted Apple’s motion to intervene on behalf of iOS developers in a legal shakedown initiated by patent troll Lodsys. Specifically, Apple will now be allowed to argue that iOS developers—who were sued over alleged patent infringement for using iOS’s in-app purchasing APIs—do not infringe because Apple already obtained a license to the patent in question.
