  • Vringo: Remix For The Price Of A Song [View article]
    Modernist knows they are wrong. If you want to see how wrong they are on VRNG, see their advice on DDMG. The company went bankrupt and they said sorry.

    Amazing advice both here and there.

    Lots of good results we can all take faith in.

  • Google (GOOG -0.1%) has tapped Asia-Pac/worldwide mobile chief Daniel Alegre to replace Henrique de Castro as the head of its Partner Business Solutions group, which handles ad sales relationships with partners. Shares are down slightly this morning even though many tech peers are edging higher: there could be concerns Marissa Mayer will be able to get additional Google execs to jump ship for Yahoo (YHOO) in the wake of de Castro's hiring[View news story]
    It looks like this may be going on in hiring him so Yahoo can bid on VRNG and take on Google again in search.

  • Google Vs. Vringo: Why I Think A Settlement Is In The Cards [View article]
    OK so for all non-lawyers or non patent lawyers here is a case Google is basing their defense on but here is their flaw.

    Google can not prove from all data it has that Lang deliberately delayed filing. His group did not rebuy his patents from other company till this year.

    They were asking for all these records to prove laches but IMHO it is very very weak based on long time study of patent laws and Supreme Court rulings on this matter.

    Google's defense not likely to work since new owners came in after.

    goo.gl/OKwEM

    The harm of the delay can be shown in a variety of ways. Here, the magistrate judge focused on evidentiary harms and economic harms.
    Evidence Lost: Troxler founder and CEO died during the interim. He had directed the development of the accused product.
    Evidence Lost: Time delay has probably faded the memory of the Pine inventors.
    Evidence Lost: Many documents have been destroyed. (Troxler is a family business – "When the drawer gets full, you toss something.")
    Economic: In the interim, Troxler has invested millions of dollars in manufacturing facilities and producing the alleged product.
    Based on the potential validity of some of these arguments, the magistrate judge recommended they be explored at trial.
    Unclean Hands: Because laches and equitable estoppel are both judged in equity, Pine argued that Troxler's "unclean hands" should bar the company from relying upon those defenses. Particularly, Pine noted discovery shenanigans and filing suit without a good faith basis. The magistrate judge agreed that allegations of "egregious behavior" must be included in any equitable decision.
    The district court will now decide whether to convert the magistrate judge's recommendations into an order.

    Thanks for this article Ron.

    What about iphone5 and ARMH licenses?
    Would this be a short term catalyst for ARMH?

    Can you write a separate article on your bull case for AMD?
