It would seem a specific type of Patent trolling is starting to take grip. Austin Meyers, the designer of the X-Plane series illustrates in a short video on Youtube how he is being taken to court over submitting his popular game to the Google Play Store. In the lawsuit that is dragging on for almost 5 years Mr. Meyers takes the viewer a fairly disgusting journey of scummy law deals and corruption that could easily destroy many forms of innovation.
One of the hardest parts of defending the actions here is that the Jury might not have a full understanding of what actually is going on. The system appears to be too corrupt for any changes to be made. Thankfully, Mr. Meyers isn’t afraid of the task and manages to illustrate the story in a lightweight manner, especially when you consider how infuriating this must be for a farce to carry on so long. One can only hope Google will step in here with their army of lawyers. Google, Microsoft, and Apple, have every interest in destroying this type of action as this is an industry that will destroy their developer community.
