Lodsys Gets Busy and Sues Rovio, EA, Atari, Square Enix, Take-Two Interactive
Looks like Lodsys is back in action again and has started lawsuits against five major game companies. According to FOSSpatents, Lodsys is going after Rovio for Angry Birds for iOS (NOO!!) and Android, EA for Sims 3 (iPhone), Atari and their Greatest Hits Series, Square Enix for Big Hit Baseball, and Take-Two Interactive for NHL 2K for iPhone.
Lodsys is definitely not shy of going after giants, as they have other lawsuits against companies such as HP, Brother, Adidas, Best Buy, and the New York Times. Not only that, Lodsys has also gone after Android developers too, bringing the total to 37 defendants they are suing. They also have an ongoing lawsuit against App Store developers, but Apple’s legal team is now in the fight.
Not much to say here, other than ‘good luck’ to Lodsys. I don’t think they’re getting much respect from anyone.
