Lodsys is one of those companies that exist solely to claim rights to ideas and then make money off of companies that actually do things by selling patents or suing over infringements. Now it has the videogame industry in its sights, as it aims to tackle eleven companies at once.
Electronic Arts, Square Enix, Take-Two and even Rovio have been roped into the fight, with Lodsys accusing them all of infractions. Various other mobile developers are all embroiled in separate battles with company, and in the past six months alone, Lodsys has taken Best Buy, Canon Sam's Club, Samsung, Best Western, CVS, and Adidas to court.
Amazingly, it is believed that the people who work at Lodsys are able to look in the mirror and not see a throbbing, drooling leech staring right back at them.
