On May 23, 2011, Apple’s General Counsel Bruce Sewell published this letter.  There have been requests from App Developers to provide more context to the situation with Apple… here is a redacted version of the response letter which Lodsys’ attorneys sent Apple in response (PDF) (the parts redacted are due to Apple’s insistence that the actual terms of their license remain confidential). Lodsys does not dispute that Apple had a license, but Lodsys’ response does make it clear that, even if not void or otherwise terminated, the license Apple did have does not extend to independent App Developers.
