  • Apple Is Beating The Same Drum. RPX Files 7 Identical IPR Requests. 1 comment
    Nov 20, 2013 11:25 PM | about stocks: VHC, AAPL

    VirnetX (NYSEMKT:VHC) has been the target of 7 IPR requests by RPX , a company that is supposed to protect its clients that are intertwined from patent costs.

    It seems that this is Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) new attempt to attack VirnetX's patents after its failed attempts to join on New Bay's IPR requests and the fact that its own attempt is over a year old - so will likely be invalidated.

    It seems that these are identical to those filed by New Bay Capital.

    I will be working on an article now.

    Disclosure: I am long VHC.

    Great catch, Tom. This is so far outside RPXC's supposed business model, it indeed suggests both they aren't busy enough with their own work and they're susceptible to doing favors for favored folks.

  • $RGDED Top picks here. TSX "mini-crash" and retail confusion offers buying opportunity. Huge rev growth, several deals, undervalued IMO.
