  • The Patent Game: Payoff Or Bust! [View article]
    If found to be more than a colorable variation, Googs says it's their 7th amendment right to a jury trial. Whats the deal with that?

  • Parkervision's Win Has Investors Cheering: Don't Be Surprised To See A Secondary Offering On The Way Though [View article]
    How long can google go? If they can appeal, and appeal and they hit a dead end, there is no settlement left. It will be 2016 and they will owe ALL of the money immediately. If the current appeals is the last option, they will wait until the whole case is done. Say they lose flat out in mid 2014. Just for conversation, it adds up to about 800 million, all google is looking to do is settle the future payments of... lets say 500 million down to an immediate payment of 350 million. Google ain't settling until they flat out lose.

  • Is Vringo A Lottery Ticket Or An Investment? [View article]
    Justin, you mean those questions, that you were going to report back to everyone on stwts? Never happened, shady. I even explicitly asked you to ask them their threshold of thoughts for a dilution. Where is your journalistic report on the situation?

  • Vringo Reexamination Update [View article]
    KP, you mean like those Google settlements that you were constantly preaching to be "soon" over 6 to 10 months ago?

  • Vringo Reexamination Update [View article]
    I don't know if there are no connections, because of displayed JJ history. There shouldn't be but JJ did nothing until 420 reaffirmed. That is no coincidence. What is stopping JJ to wait on the 420 process AGAIN? Nothing.

  • Vringo's Timeline Vs. Obama's Patent Troll Plan [View article]
    The handling of Syria was the last straw? He lost all credibility in his first four years. Anybody with rational thought did not vote for him in the second term. Even the diehard liberals that voted for him the first time were shocked how he turned against them. Guess what they didn't vote for him a second time.

  • Undervalued Vringo's $100M Victory Against Google [View article]
    Rick and Bruce, Google notated in their motions that suggesting a 7 percent royalty equates to over 20 million a month. That was part of their support to avoid any sanctions as this delay was necessary to acquire all documents and any sanctions would be a hasty move.

    This is a good point by Rick C. We don't know Vrng's timeline or agenda but they can't very well start suing more entities without some idea of when additional cashflow will be coming their way. If new laws are placed before VRNG can inititiate litigation, they got problems.

    LOL! Goog is an ambassador. Talk about hyperbole. But I guess that's why they were able to go to North Korea? And Page is genuine! LOL, he negates his "mantra" a myriad of times. The googs is just part of the corporate fascism realm. What I find unsettling in this day and age is that many people don't see it. Oh, Steve Jobs copied off of others too and is just as bad.

  • Capitalizing On Cannabis: Medical Marijuana Interview With Steve Gdula [View article]
    Alan, or to anybody? Do you think it is possible to be an independent grower and have a viable profitable business? And I mean for recreational, not just medical. The reason I ask is.. I personally know some very knowledgeable "plant" growers and since the DOJ said they will leave states alone, (I live in Washington State), I would think there would be a big profit margin on this. ALTHOUGH, the laws for standard procedure, etc, have not been created yet. So who knows what channels and redtape people would have to go through. I mean you can have weed on you but you can't buy it...., it comes from the weed fairy.... I would say I would have the capital to start something like this but who knows how difficult it will be and maybe only corps will be able to compete. Even if they allow your own weed growing at home, not everybody will do it. Its just like Microbrewing. People go out to have a good beer, not all is made at home. Thanks for any thoughts on my clueless diatribe.

    This is getting ridiculous. JJ took this route for "judicial economies". I will be amazed if JJ the joke, actually reprimands the googs.

    That's all nice but with a scant income the earlier this trial ends the better for using cash on other opportunities.

  • Are Facebook, Twitter And Google Infringing Vringo's Quantumstream Patents? [View article]
    Checkers, while it is nice to see Dan extrapolate patent info and case law, etc. (because that is his profession) He can value a stock as well as a first grader creating artwork with finger paintings.

  • Vringo: PTO Ruling Significantly Undervalued [View article]
    Hello Mcfly. There is no reason for the stock to have a huge reaction to this. While it is great news for further down the road, VRNG is still waiting on plenty of pieces especially what route JJ is going. Pretty simple....

  • Is This The Google "Workaround"? [View instapost]
    To cover all their bases. People still seem to believe, that providing a "workaround" admits guilt. The jury already said Google infringed. Whether they win appeals or not, this supposed workaround would reduce any royalty payments further. It's no different than why they will take this case as far as possible. To prevent other companies to do the same thing. How much is that worth? That is a subjective viewpoint. Only Google truly knows what they are willing to spend, to go to the ends of the earth to stop patent trolls. The ludicrous part is Google is a troll themselves.
