AOL's (AOL -1.7%) IP portfolio would fetch ~$290M in a sale, patent-advisory firm M-Cam reckons, much less than the $1B bandied about by MDB Capital. Shareholder Starboard Value estimates that the portfolio could generate as much in licensing income, but M-Cam says that "most of AOL’s patents are not commercially viable, or are junk grade."
