  • Vringo Receives Support In Fight Against Google [View article]
    Well laid out Tech;

    The SCOTUS granting cert and taking the case is by and far the best thing for us but I think the odds are very low for a full hearing but the odds are good for a GVR. The CAFA did not delve into the case and just summarily dismissed it so there are a lot of other issues that they can pick apart; damages, court instructions, etc. However; there are some issues that can be in v's favor such as latches and the jury error. I am not worried about damages because they were well documented, unlike most patent trials, there was empirical evidence to support the damage award. The willfulness multiplier is not unusual so not too much risk there but whoever looses will definitely appeal to SCOTUS again and the waiting game starts all over.

  • Vringo plans to file "comprehensive sanctions motion" against ZTE [View news story]
    Jimbolo;

    Yes, a cool 1B would suffice. They just raised the cash so it would hit immediately. There is no way Kaplan can assess damages high enough to bk z , remember this is only about the NDA and not about patent infringement.

    We don't want a death penalty, we want collectible damages so we don't have to live through another 10 years for our payday. A cool 1 b settlement would compensate and make us very, very happy and rich!

    ~1.2billion. That's a lot of upside for the stock if there is positive SCOTUS opinion.

    They will get sanctioned. If Gue was in the US he would be in jail or on bond for not complying. Judges take contempt very seriously but at this stage the punishment will be financial.

  • Vringo Sends Strong Message To SCOTUS And Google With Writ Of Certiorari And Why Shares Could Pop [View article]
    Thanks for the update MG;

    I cannot believe that the SCOTUS would leave this verdict intact. It goes against case law, rules and any sense of logic. Reading the amicus briefs, the petitioners excoriated the per curium. It would stand in contrast to their recent Teva ruling.

    Goog is a 200b company, they blow a billion a year on bs, do you really think they are going to reorganize the whole company because of ~1b potential cost. Come on this is getting silly.

    BK? Who are you referring to? Surely you are not referring to v and there is no way that zte is going to file bk over a billion or less judgement. What are you talking about?

    Goog formed a new holding company called alphabet. Does not affect us at all.

    Not sure it is all about sanctions. I think this is mostly about how many times z violated court orders, refused to answer questions, refused to appear, etc. This is to make the record on a comprehensive list of z's lawlessness while asking for sanctions. Damages will have to be proven in court with expert witnesses.

  • Vringo +15.7%; company demands ZTE produce all "responsive documents" [View news story]
    Strike;

    VRNG is a company in distress because of the CAFA decision but the prospects of the company appear promising. Your empirical evidence of companies after stock splits is on target but this is not an analogous situation. This is almost a binary situation, if we win we get paid hundreds of millions, if we lose, we lose everything. Most companies do not operate in binary environments.

    To put it in a macabre context: people that have chemo therapy do not live very long lives and are unhealthy, therefore, chemo therapy (reverse splits) kills people (companies). Healthy people do not take chemo and some sick ones actually live really well. I know, I did the chemo thing 30 years ago.

    This is a back up plan in case the stock does not trade well, above $1; their performance has been dismal but it seems to be looking up. Keep the faith.

    Tech;

    You stated that you believe Kaplan will rule in early '16. It seems he should rule in 1-2 months since v is submitting a motion for damages, then z gets 20 days to respond, etc. To me it seems, absent a deal, we are only a few months away from a final order. SCOTUS gvr would pop the stock over $3 and that is less than 2 months away. The stock might even start climbing before as the shorts cover.

    I agree that the RS will probably not be necessary. Who cares, the only thing that matters is some wins.
