    What if the judge decides the 3.5% royalty rate was the mistake made by the Jury and not the 15 or so million dollar amount awarded from Google. What if the judge takes the 15 million as a guide for his decision and adjusts the royalty rate to a 0.35% instead of 3.5%? For which I do not think anyone would be able to blame a judge for that since GOOG portion of the verdict was the sizable (real value) part of the valuation of the jury award.

    Thanks Alan. Yes I agree. I have been doing alot of reading on this today, including the verdict. When I finished reading the comments under Ashraf's article, Clearly bulls were attacking him, One would get the idea that VRNG stock price was about to hit 100$ mark for sure. Then I read more and more, pulled up the verdict and now I am more certain of this as a pure speculation and even if the VRNG got a proper verdict, it is still not clear how that would realistically reflect on the stock price and continue in to the future. I am also disappointed that a jury would make such a mistake in a very important verdict. This is a bad verdict for the rights of those who work hard for patents and a victory for giants like Google who do not want to bother to waste time or money for goods/services they utilize for their growth.

  • The Vringo Vs. Google Verdict: Did Vringo Investors Win As Well? [View article]
    what is your rationale behind a 20+ price valuation? Are you a regulated price adjustor to assign such a price tag?

    What if the judge decides the 3.5% was the mistake made by the Jury and not the 15 million dollar amount. What if the judge divides 15 million with the billions of gross revenue amount google submitted to court and comes up with a 0.35% royalty rate?

    nice upside breakout if an out of the blue event hit the stock with a sudden oversold status or a perfect sign of previously overly pumped stock when suddenly people realized that it was a big balloon hence are jumping ship.

    Is that the case for all final rulings?

    Here is my take from his comments and following HER articles over a period of time. VRNG buys or does not buy patents, when you do not develop patents yourself it is not based on your R&D and knowledge base hence no guarantee of future developments. However, you can buy all you want when there are sellers and you may even get lucky on them which apparently VRNG is making some money and they are lucky maybe even really good at what they do but Ashraf sees the stock price not worth any more than 3 dollars and that is his opinion and call. If he loses he will lose money on it and you will be the one taking his money if you initiated a long position.
    Overall how do you define the VRNG business model? I define it as speculative, another commentator here defined it as ambulance chasing and many others as other things. Everyone is entitled to his/her opinion. The business model maybe perfect for you but may not be as such for others.

    He is not saying he is shorting it right now, he is saying he shorted and made money on it.

    Lets assume VRNG wins the lawsuit, and the stock goes upto 5$, how long will it take till it goes back down? What are the chances that they will have such a successful (if successful) lawsuit again?

    It sounds more like VRNG is a team of lawyers trying to make money in the court room. Apparently, since the business is making money, this should mean that they are successful in their activities to some extent. However, in my opinion, the business model is (whatever it is) speculative at best. The more lawsuits they start up, the better they may fair but in order to open those suits they have to play the gamble of the numbers. In their case the more would not lead into more money since lawsuits are time consuming, costly and victory does not have a formula. In the case of an ambulance chaser, the risks of failure is much more limited and some sort of a payback is more certain since in an accident, it is almost assured that there is someone at fault which is not the case in patent lawsuits and the damages are not easy to calculate/estimate/ass... Ambulance chasers have the mercy of the jury who may even see the injured person without a leg and/or an arm etc. unlike a patent suit where damages you claim are just what you claim. So I would be inclined to question such a business model. It is definitely not a growth model, is it a value model? What is it?
