FOSS Patents: Two more lawsuits against Lodsys

Great reporting by Florian Müller on the ongoing Lodsys-Patent-Trolling-Case.

This is my favourite part of the post:

OpinionLab is the first company to sue Lodsys not only under patent law but to additionally make demands under rules against unfair competition and tortious interference.

Those additional allegations are tough, and beyond a merely declaratory judgment, OpinionLab seeks injunctive and monetary relief. In other words, they bring claims that pose a significant economic risk to Lodsys.

I’m looking forward to see this patent troll have his ass handed to him.
