There was a rumor somewhere that Apple was looking into the situation, that'd end it well enough.

Hopefully Dan & the rest of Armor don't give in.

It could be Lodsys' *strategy* to spam all over the places to receive maximum possible settlement. It might be Lodsys' plan to take on the next candidates in line; Google, Microsoft, BB, you name it.

I filed few PPA/RPA myself, and had a brief taste of how hard it could be to have your name written on an intangible property. I'm just a strong advocate of intellectual property right. Nonetheless, the way Lodsys swinging their *thing* disturbs me like an unrated film being played on an open street.
