Advice for Developers Targeted by Lodsys

Many developers of both iOS and Android apps had legal action brought against them by Lodsys for patents they claim to hold for things like in-app purchases. Here is some advice if you are one of those developers:

Lodsys won’t go away quickly unless Apple and Google pay them many millions of dollars (which could happen anytime but might also never happen). Meanwhile, each app developer who faces this problem should make a rational and responsible decision — even if it means to pay. So far there’s no indication that Android developers can get away without paying, and iOS developers don’t have a dependable basis for ignoring Lodsys’s insistent demands.

As a developer, what is your opinion of this? Please share with us in the comments.
