Lodsys '565 Patent, 24 Claims Rejected : Non-Final Office Action

The patent troll that have been haunting app developers on both iOS and Android platforms, Lodsys has received first office action. Four independent claims and 20 dependent claims have been rejected leaving zero independent claims and 8 dependent claims.
The USPTO (The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office) granted the reexamination of two Lodsys patents challenged by Google and has issued a first office action on the '565 patent.. Four independent and 24 dependent claims challenged by Google, the USPTO has rejected all four independent claims and 20 of the 24 dependent claims in this patent.
Earlier, USPTO rejected 28 claims of the other patent of Lodsys challenged, the '078.
You can read about all the legal stuff about this case at Groklaw, where they take confusion out of simple facts like "rejection of claims" whether it is Google's claim or the claims associated with the patent.

Levy, Levy & Sosa has been my Trademark Attorney for several years. I’m quite pleased with their quality of service, pricing and responsiveness. What I admire the most about their team is that they truly enjoy what they do and take the time to educate clients on what’s possible in the industry. I own a small business in New York... working with LLS has made all the difference for my company. You should visit their website (1-800-464-5554). I highly recommend them to business owners needing trademark services.
