  • Vringo Vs. Google: Take A Deep Breath, The Roller Coaster Continues [View instapost]
    I'm kind of wondering where you're coming up with "I hope it's a goose egg."
    Rooting for the home team is all well and your choice, however does that mean VRNG doesn't deserve lawful financial return for violation of their intellectual property.

    Though VRNG could very well be deemed a "patent troll" (due to the aforementioned trial) this sly maneuvering shouldn't eradicate all of the settlement value, and thus property value. Simply math would show that they are looking for a small percentage of revenue from GOOG who used VRNG's intellectual property to profit into a global internet giant. If someone stole a car from me, the cops wouldn't turn and say I can have a few percent of the current MMR for every year the crook had the car. (obviously the auto insurance company would pay unless the vehicle was found, but you get the point)

    The law, VRNG is in the right to "some" amount of money. They own the patents. Jackson made a simple ruling that VRNG can't make GOOG pay through the nose for past violations of their patents prior to the filing of the lawsuit, but they will pay.
