Earlier this year, patent holding company Lodsys began sending threatening letters and filing lawsuits against a number of iOS developers, claiming that all iOS developers needed to license its technology. Now developer Mike Lee is calling for all iOS developers to band together and join a group called the Appsterdam Legal Defense Team.

"We will let the patent trolls know: if you attack one indie, you attack all indies, and we will file every motion we can against you, we will attack your patents, and we will show you for the mafioso thugs you are," Lee blogged. "Legal action will be the start of our three-pronged attack. Next we'll take the fight to Washington, raising a wall of legislation against future attacks."
