According to Ars Technica, Lodsys has filed a lawsuit claiming that charter.com, lampsplus.com, corbisimages.com and shop.nordstrom.com infringe upon the following two patents:

  • Methods and systems for gathering information from units of a commodity across a network (US7222078)
  • Customer-based product design module (US7620565)

Recently, Lodsys has filed further lawsuits against mobile gaming companies including Gameloft and Gamevil, citing patent infringement on those same two patents.
