| I hate these guys, and the ways they exploit the legal system solely as a means of profit.|
A while back I did a little research:
Turns out they are suing everyone. Hopefully the EFF or one of the printer companies will step up and get this patent thrown out, since it is obviously too vague and Lodsys is abusing it beyond anything we've seen before... including Monster Cable's suing spree a while back.
Lodsys LLC has been busy trying to sue a lot of people for patent infringement, some of which to date have been thrown out in some courts by the judge questioning that validity of the patents. Some previous targets this year alone have been Best Buy, Motorola, HP, Canon, Adidas, Hewlett-Pacard, Hulu, Lenovo, Lexmark, and Samsung, just to name a few. There there are all the iOS developers currently targeted by this company.
