ForeSee Results, an industry analyst firm, has filed a declaratory lawsuit against Lodsys in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. ForeSee Results has a few big customers — such as Best Buy, WE Energies, and Adidas — that have reportedly been threatened with legal action by Lodsys, and so the firm has decided to take the fight into its own hands. The results of a declaratory lawsuit should settle the dispute on whether or not the developers using Lodsys’ in-app purchasing technology are covered under Apple’s license or not. If they are covered by Apple’s license, as Apple has already argued, then the hope is Lodsys will stop pestering them to pay up.
