Angry Birds Maker Sued for Patent Infringement

Rovio, the maker of the iconic mobile game Angry Birds, has been swept up in an ongoing patent war that has hit many app developers and embroiled Apple in a bitter legal exchange. Lodsys, a Texas-based patent licensing company, filed an amended complaint with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, which names a number of other big games makers including Atari, EA, and Take-Two Interactive.
