  • White House nominates ex-Google patent counsel to head USPTO [View news story]
    Who are the "patent assertion entities with legitimate patent claims" you refer to? Am not well schooled on the Apple vs VHC case, but more so on V vs. G. Are you saying G has a legitimate claim to the adwords patents (2)? Granted Ken Lang and his partner were paid for their work way back in the 90's, but to just take the patented knowledge and start (and develop into) one of the most profitable companies on earth and then try their best to sweep it under the table, is just not right, to say the very least. Stealing others ideas for your own personal gain is not my idea of "do no evil". I hope v wins in their en banc.

  • White House nominates ex-Google patent counsel to head USPTO [View news story]
    Ce, you are missing the point. The software companies thriving the most, Google and Apple in this case, have been favored in these rulings. Possibly because they provide many jobs, positive growth to the overall economy etc... But for many who have followed these cases for years now there is definitely change in the air. Since Congress in reality "punted" the issue this past year, it likely frustrated and the White House admin's, whoever they may be, into this action/ reaction. Vringo definitely got &$@?&:!

    What a coincidence! Two en banc filings in the same week and this news. It reeks of something foul, certainly hope the Justice System really has some justice left, as the executive branch apparently does not. No wonder so many people don't vote they get so sick of this type of corruption which they feel nothing can be done about. I pray the majority of CAFC judges has not been arm twisted themselves.

  • Vringo bolsters legal team, provides update on trials [View news story]
    Did anyone read the 8k from a couple of days ago? May have been the 2.5 m? It is better to have mgmt updates than not. If we are going down hard, it will be in a ball of fire and certainly not without a good fight. MHO.

  • Vringo, Inc. Will Announce Settlement With Belkin International This Week And Other Positive Catalysts [View article]
    Well micro cap you did one thing right here, you wakened IP Hawk and Kevin Porter! these guys have been through the wars and I value their opinion. The entire story is like a feel good medication for us pounded longs who may not be through getting thrashed before it's all over. I seriously doubt the 26th will bring any meaningful news.

  • Buyer Beware: Image Sensing Systems Has Nothing To Do With Body-Worn Cameras [View article]
    The casino is open! Day traders beware, unless you are in DGLY or TASR, the minefields are everywhere. Taser already is positioned to do well with this unfortunate Ferguson MO incident.

  • China Finance Online - Still Cheap And Likely To Pre-Announce A Record Q2 In The Coming Days [View article]
    Undiscovered? Go back and look at their 10 year chart. The potential has always been there, it's just difficult to believe the numbers are real. The same can be said for many, but not all, Chinese companies and their earnings/ revenues. You may be right/ you may be wrong. GLTA.

  • Alice Corp. Vs. CLS Bank: Are Software Patents Dead? [View article]
    Interesting overview of the ruling. This will hopefully clear up many questions about patents which were left unanswered. It seems to me that nothing will be different, in most high profile infringement cases, but will litigating lawyers now have an additional "stall tactic" to add to their arsenal? Wouldn't surprise me, but I hope not. Determining if the software adds to functionality or is it abstract? God help us!

  • I Have No Fear Of A Market Crash Or A Significant Correction, Here's Why: Part 1 [View article]
    Chuck once again you make so much sense. Have been considering going to cash with my dividend based assets(mutual funds), but figured even if a sizable correction happens where better could I be than with quality dividend growers? You're opinion is THE BEST on SA in my opinion, great read, thanks.

  • Lady Liberty Rescues Vringo; Google Royalty Tab To Exceed $1.8 Billion [View article]
    I am a long term holder also,since11/8/12, so have been thru all the machinations, just get a little impatient sometimes. Isn't it incredible how many rulings have gone their way(vringo), yet the price is where it is? Really appreciate your input /DD.

  • Lady Liberty Rescues Vringo; Google Royalty Tab To Exceed $1.8 Billion [View article]
    Thanks for the perspective on the laches ruling, makes a lot of sense to me. But what troubles me is the manipulation of the stock price. Of course, there is the options angle, the shorting, but there is something else going on here. Wish I knew what it was, but don't. So everyone has one right? (an opinion or%@#&*(#), so how about this: with the heavy mutual fund ownership of Goog, 85% I heard mentioned, though not absolute, could a fund family be offering large holders a fat dividend monthly with the holder still on the books as a long and essentially freezing the shares/float? I know it's a bit off the wall but nothing would surprise me.

  • Vringo moves higher on court letter [View news story]
    Read the disposition: the ruling in the MGM vs Petralla case was reversed by the Siupreme Court. Will it be applied in the AOL vs. IP engine case? That is the question.
