Apple files motion to intervene in Lodsys suit
"are individuals or small entities with far fewer resources than Apple and [...] lack the technical information, ability, and incentive to adequately protect Apple's rights under its license agreement."
Precedence suggests Apple will be allowed to intervene in this case. The company will likely argue that Lodsys' claims are covered by an existing licensing agreement Apple has with the firm. If Apple is successful, Lodsys would not be allowed to collect twice on the same licensed patent.
It is not known whether Apple will pay for the legal costs of these developers, but it is good news that Apple is stepping in legally in this case.
