VirnetX (VHC +22%) takes off after striking a patent licensing deal with Aastra, a maker of IP communications gear for enterprises. The deal puts an end to litigation between the companies, and results in VirnetX receiving a one-time licensing fee and ongoing royalties. The agreement, which comes a week after a favorable Markman ruling, is fueling hopes similar deals will be reached with Cisco, Apple, and NEC.

    12 Million shares out of 54 Million are short @ a 30% cost to borrow. It could take days for shorts to unwind.

    What does that mean for the share price in the short term? And what happens if another settlement is reached?
