iOS Developers Form Appsterdam Legal Defense Team to Fight Patent Trolls

iOS developers are teaming up to form the Appsterdam Legal Defense Team to fight patent trolls like Lodsys.
Let App Makers be as the ants of East Texas, minding their business until someone invades their anthill. Then Swarm! Swarm! Swarm! We will let the patent trolls know: if you attack one indie, you attack all indies, and we will file every motion we can against you, we will attack your patents, and we will show you for the mafioso thugs you are.
Our general in this fight is Michael McCoy, a Longhorn Texas technology attorney who is also conveniently licensed in California. We’ve been meeting in Amsterdam to hammer out a strategy and form a plan for immediate action.

Developer Mike Lee is assembling the team and organizing the Appsterdam Legal Defense Fund. A three pronged approach is planned that includes legal action, taking the fight to Washington, and launching a massive media marketing campaign.
You can contact Mike Lee at the link below for more information.
