  • Analysis Of Oral Argument In Vringo Vs. Google Patent Infringement Appeal [View article]
    DAN - thanks for your in-depth assessment of the Oral Arguments

    1: why did the VRNG attorney at the end [30 min. mark] state
    "He [GOOG Attorney] didn't address my cross appeal and [we VRNG] forgo our rebuttal" - why forgo this ?

    2: How much emphasis is placed on the Oral arguments vs. the submitted filings anyway?

    p.s. I love how the GOOG Attorney was told to "Wrap it Up" just as he said the 2nd patent 664 was found to be invalid by the PTO on the Bowman Prior Art .... I think the GOOG attorney seemed a bit scattered and was not nearly as concise and on point as VRNG was..

  • Undervalued Vringo's $100M Victory Against Google [View article]
    the Work-A-Round - Jerk-Around will be rejected just as much of Google's defense has already been rejected by the Jury and now the Judge...

    Hard to imagine Google would work around a Multi-Billion AD System when they could simple settle for a few hundred million.. Makes no sense...and if they had one or were developing one... why not tell the JURY or JUDGE... Why wait till right before Final Judgement to say you have a workaround ? So Bizarre .... and didn't Google state they in FACT WERE NOT INFRINGING...

    So why create a WorkAround to a System you are not infringing upon?

    The Google Appeal is already off to a shakey start due to the USPTO re-Affirirming the Vringo Patents as Valid.

    Not sure what Google can argue But at some point they MUST now pay the piper...

    The Jugde has given Google a bit more rope to Settle this case or face the Judges' wrath of increased Running Royalty up from 3.5% from what the Jury recommended....

    Time will tell

  • USPTO Checkmates Google Over Vringo Patents [View article]
    Goggle files to remove USPTO Reference in Appeal Brief

    " To Avoid confusion of the issues in this Appeal with obsolete and irrelevant passsages, Defendants respectively seek to file a Corrected Opening Brief excising these passages"

    Very Funny
    the USPTO Really did Checkmate Google

  • Can Judge Jackson Still Ignore Google's Work-Around? [View article]
    Chris Grunewald you said "What part about V asking for "a period for fact and potentially expert discovery of the redesign and a briefing schedule" confuses you, KevinPorter? "

    BUT V's CONCLUSION clarifies their request

    For these reasons, and as set forth in its moving papers, I/P Engine respectfully requests that this Court enter an Order requiring that, for the period from November 20, 2012 through April 4, 2016, Defendants pay I/P Engine ongoing royalties computed on a base of 20.9% of Defendants’ U.S. AdWords revenues, at a running royalty rate of 7% of that base for Defendants’ continued willful infringement.

    I/P Engine also requests that this Court enter an Order requiring Google to report and make payments as proposed by I/P Engine in its moving papers and as modified above.

  • Google Values Vringo At $200 Billion [View article]
    Remember the movie "A FEW GOOD MEN"

    "Why the 2 orders Colonel ??"

    if Google Really Didn't Infringe the Vringo Patents - then why the 2 theories
    - Why have a Work-a-Round for Patents you are not infringing ????

    "If Kendrick told his men that Santiago wasn't to be touched, then why did he have to be transferred? Colonel? Kendrick ordered the code red, didn't he? Because that's what you told Kendrick to do."

  • Google Claims To Have Defeated Vringo Search Patents [View article]

    Defendants request to expedite the briefing on Defendants’ Renewed Motion to Compel
    Deposition of Dr. Becker and for Enlargement of Time to Oppose Plaintiff’s Motion for PostJudgment Royalties should be denied. Plaintiff’s Motion for Post Judgment Damages was filed
    almost four months ago. Any timing issues relating to the current motion schedule are of
    Defendants’ own making – at all times, I/P Engine acted diligently and in good faith regarding
    Defendants’ request for an extension.
    I/P Engine filed its Motion for Post Judgment Damages on December 18, 2012. On April
    3, 2013, the Court reset the briefing schedule for Defendants’ opposition to April 18, and I/P
    Engine’s reply to April 25. After the close of business on April 8, Defendants demanded that Dr.
    Becker be provided for deposition “at least 5 days before [their] opposition is due” – in other
    words, in the next three days.1
    Defendants did not request an extension of the briefing schedule
    at that time. At a meet and confer on April 9, Defendants did not pursue their request to depose
    (See Ex. 1) I/P Engine has consistently opposed since January the further deposition of Dr.
    Case 2:11-cv-00512-RAJ-TEM Document 927 Filed 04/16/13 Page 1 of 4 PageID# 230362
    Dr. Becker. Instead, during that meet and confer, Defendants were preoccupied with their
    suggestion that because Google might attempt to implement an alleged design around at some
    future date, all briefing should be postponed. Defendants made no proposal at that time, but said
    that they would send a proposed schedule sometime later. (Ex. 2)
    It was not until late Friday afternoon, that Defendants sent their proposal. (Ex. 3) Upon
    receipt, I/P Engine immediately asked for clarification regarding the proposal. (Ex. 4) The
    parties then discussed the issue by phone the morning of Monday, April 15, 2012 (approximately
    11:51 AM (ET)/8:51 AM (PT)). It was not until this conversation that Defendants clarified their
    request. I/P Engine did not respond to, much less accept, Defendants’ request during that
    conversation. After considering Defendants’ request, I/P Engine advised Defendants at 2:40 PM
    (ET)/11:40 AM (PT) that I/P Engine would not agree to a further delay of the briefing schedule.
    (Ex. 5)

  • Can Vringo Win 7% Royalties From Google? [View article]
    3.5% may have been enough if the jury didn't botch the past damages
    5% sounds rational and fair
    7% may be a stretch

    hope to find out soon

  • Vringo: Don't Count Your Chickens [View article]
    Chis thanks but IMO Vringo will collect $100-$200 MM from MSFT as it certainly is WILLFUL 2x, 3x Damages as MSFT went to Patent a search technology and the USPTO said sorry guys VRNG owns that patent [ they have known all along ]

    .... MSFT Settlement Talks with VRNG is more than $70-$90 MM perhaps a joint venture with MSFT/VRNG or shared Search platform ... maybe a deal with VRNGs Nokia Patent Portfolio ... ?

    Ahhh CHRIS you forgot to mention ZTE .... VRNG vs ZTE
    Multiple European Lawsuits on many fronts with a recent raid on ZTEs offices... recall a HIGH Threshold of proof has already been established by VRNG ... Oct/Nov Court Date there and potential additional settlement

    ZTE does approx. $40 Million in Revenues / DAY !!!
    take 1% or 3.5% there too and you may just need a bigger calculator ....
    who's next too after MSFT / GOOG .... YAHOO / FB add that in too

    ...... so YES

    VRNG Share Holders ***SHOULD BE COUNTING THEIR CHICKENS ***... maybe in their sleep ....

  • Vringo's Billion-Dollar Win At Hand [View article]
    Google's Legal Team - the objective should be to LIMIT the Exposure and Damages of their client... Google's Legal Team thus far has ...

    a] made a mockery of the court system
    b] been found to have unnamioulsly infringed on their key product by a Jury
    c] been found to have used VALID patents that belonged to Vringo
    d] rung up millions of legal fees
    e] exposed their client to 2x or 3x more in potential damages
    f] invited the competition to the table and have increased the likelihood of a competitor buying the Lang Patents and possibly Motorola Patents too that could further harm their client going forward
    g] exposed negitive PR and News about their client

    maybe this is fun for them playing games with a patent they used of which was not theirs only to watch their AD revenues run up by 20% and forever change their business ....

    Waiting for justice ...

  • Vringo: How Much Is A Settlement With Microsoft? [View article]
    iHub ..... Share prices ahead of an event is not relevant. Check a bio tech stock before a FDA approval and they get trashed , once the approval comes all the shorts run for their lives.

    Check Blackberry 155 million shares shorted. The company had been shorted all the way from $6 to $15 today and it hit $18. They still don't believe in them 3/4 of the analysts still think it is going out of business. As I said the share price is where it is because we are almost 5 months post trial without a decision and people get nervous and shorts take advantage of human nature.

    This does not mean they are right. Right now Vringo is a better buy than it was immediately after the the trial. The reasons are many but I will boil it down to 3 reasons. One, the decision by the Judge is imminent and no matter how many shorts show up on every message board this won't change.

    Second Microsoft wanting to settle with Vringo before the Judges decision is a really strong indication their position is correct. Microsoft does not need the Judge to affirm the jury ruling they know they are infringing on the Lang patents and are working on a settlement.

    Finally the news with ZTE today was fantastic. They are tightening the noose around this company's neck.

    Lawsuit in France and China along with the UK and Germany, basically all their big markets. They are asking for and will receive an injuction on ZTE's products (most likely). The news today also indicated they raided ZTE offices and found evidence of patent infringement.

    How do you think Vringo obtained the authority to allow a raid without convincing a magistrate that ZTE was infringing on their patents first and then they found the evidence to prove it. ZTE will not be attending their court dates (my prediction) they have a history of settling when they get caught and they just did.
