Electronic Arts and nine other game developers are being sued by Uniloc which claims that some of their Android applications infringe a patent for preventing unauthorized access to electronic data.

Uniloc has claimed for example that Electronic Arts infringes one or more claims of the patent in its Android applications, including Bejeweled 2, that require communication with a server to perform a license check to prevent the unauthorized use of the application.

Similar allegations of patent infringement have been made against the other companies.
