Apple Can Defend App Devs Against Lodsys

From Ars Technica:

Apple’s motion to intervene was filed last June, and developers entered 2012 still unsure if Apple would be able to assist in their defense. As noted by FOSS Patents, the original judge assigned to the case had since resigned, and the case had to be reassigned. The new judge overseeing the case, Judge Rodney Gilstrap, agreed that Apple should be allowed to present evidence of its patent exhaustion argument on behalf of iOS developers.

This is great news.
