  • An Inside Look Into Apple's Latest Attack On VirnetX's Patents [View article]
    Great contribution!
    Yes, it is a rough road for them. It appears their best bet is to loop in with NB's requests.

    As far as the other recent Appeals court ruling (above link), I think that has a LOT of relevance with the ongoing reexaminations. VirnetX has repeatedly complained that they aren't getting a fair opportunity to respond...EXACTLY what the Appeals court scolded the USPTO for.

    See here:

    "Because the Office changed its positions and simultaneously closed prosecution in the same communication, the Office did not afford VirnetX a fair opportunity to respond..."


    I agree that. in the end, the Appeal courts likely will have the final say with Apple/VirnetX fight.

  • An Overreaction To The Latest Apple Ploy [View instapost]
    I agree. Davis is quite wise in hindsight. He spun off the ongoing royalty issue specifically to get VirnetX justice for past infringement, while he can now take his time to deal with the complexities he clearly knew would be coming..

    I've long thought the RR decision was several weeks away, at the soonest. But I actually think Apple's maneuvering may speed up the royalty rate decision by the Judge, in part. The ruling may be broken up now, with the royalty rate decision based on Apple's use up to Spring 2013 decided first; meanwhile kicking judgement of "colorably different" down the road.

    VPNonDemand appears to be fully in play, at least I did not hear anything about a "colorably different" workaround...however I'm getting conflicting reports on that. If anyone has any details on that, it would be appreciated.

  • Acacia Research's Earnings Were Terrible - And Why You Should Be Buying Now [View article]
    Thanks Volte-Face.
    Agreed. Interesting comment about the at least ten vs "10s" I will look into that.

    Unfortunately, there is a ton of information that I had to omit from this article for length purposes.

    For example, I would urge investors to look into the growth and development of the company's medical device licensing arm as a large growth driver for 2013. There appears to be very little competition in this field.

  • Pres. Obama isn't a fan of patent trolls. "They are essentially trying to leverage and hijack somebody else's idea and see if they can extort some money," Obama stated during a Google+ hangout. He added, "Our efforts at patent reform are only about halfway to where we need to go." The remarks come as the DOJ and FTC hold hearings on patent trolls, and an appeals court debates whether software should be patentable. Some IP holders accused of being patent trolls: ACTG, VRNG, RMBS, VHC, IDCC, WILN[View news story]
    I think this article may be relevant to this discussion. VirnetX attempts to corner Apple in patent fight:

    "VirnetX secured a jury verdict that Apple was infringing its patents and owed the company $368.2 million."

    Umm not following you. Wrong company? Did you click the link in the article? Can you clarify what are you trying to convey?

    Great question.
    They can appeal a variety of things. For example, they can appeal the verdict of invalidity re: Kiuchi or they could appeal that VirnetX did not present/calculate damages properly and thus the jury's damages number was flawed.

    However, VirnetX argues here that what they cannot appeal is anything regarding invalidity from all of the other prior art references on the asserted claims. Since they did not oppose (as a matter of law that don't invalidate the claims), they can't appeal that. So it is effectively a final ruling and they cannot continue to argue these at the Office.

  • VirnetX Vs. Apple: Keys Developments Leading Up To The Battle [View article]
    Trial going far better than I expected. Evidence clearly favored VirnetX.

    EVERY person I spoke with (even if they weren't VirnetX investors or had any affiliation) thought VirnetX will win after watching. Hopefully a jury will concur. All coming down to damages at this point IMO. We'll find out in the coming days.

    It doesn't need to go that high in the courts to validate claims.
