  • Vringo plans to file "comprehensive sanctions motion" against ZTE [View news story]
    THE COURT (to ZTE): I have to tell you that that is about as
    aggressive and unjustifiable position that I have seen in a
    long time. I made it absolutely crystal clear in my May 14
    decision where we were on all this.....

    And right about that date ZTE began the process of raising 1.25B of commercial paper....

    Go figure

    :)

    Who would like to explain to the casual reader what a reaffirmation of the jury verdict would mean to Vringo in terms of $$$$$$?

    Well-summarized Justin.

    As a shareholder who has now put all his eggs into the proverbial basket with this stock I can't allow myself to think about the returns should justice prevail against Google...

    I'm all in for the coming ZTE windfall but nothing would be more satisfying to see the Supreme Court rectify what Google apparently tried to do: buy the Federal Court of Appeal.

    6.5% of ongoing US search revenue would make for a very nice yearly dividend.

    About the same as if someone cut off your right leg.

    Also realize vrng has injunctions in Brazil and actions pending in India amongst other jurisdictions.

    in the past there was still much uncertainty as to whether the google award would hold up on appeal...this time around, if the SC reverses or grants a GVR with clear instructions to the FC as to what they may and may not infer to find the patents were obvious you will see a spike much higher than $5...

    Google alone is double digits.

    But forget about Google for a moment and focus on ZTE, yes they can still stall but will they want to if there are injunctions in place that is damaging their business? They have already tried nine times to get the Romanian injunction lifted, can you imagine what a US injunction would do to their revenue?!

    They will eventually settle. They are on record, internally, as realizing they will have to pay Vringo for the use of the SEPs that they have been using without permission. They are merely trying to get that cost as low as they can by litigating but that strategy has backfired in spectacular fashion.

    The documents which they have produced are damaging. Very damaging. They have basically admitted to manipulating Vringo's share price as a strategy to have Vringo lower their rate below FRAND levels. Just yesterday they filed notice to the court that they have hired a lawyer who specializes in helping companies who are under investigation for securities violations. One can infer that the SEC has begun to investigate.

    Their willful breach of the NDA is also going to cost them a pretty penny in punitive damages. Judge Kaplan who is overseeing the case is well respected and has been meticulous in affording ZTE every opportunity to explain their actions. Sure ZTE may try to appeal his eventual ruling but I give it a ZERO chance of success. You may agree with me if you have been following what is being revealed in the PACERS from SDNY.

    For these reasons I believe that ZTE will buckle and make a decent offer to Vringo to settle all actions and obtain a global licence on FRAND rates. Once that happens, the market will (slowly) begin to award Vringo multiples as there are other infringers that are yet to be pursued by Vringo's management and now Vringo will have a warchest of cash to pursue for as long as need be until they too settle and pay a FRAND rate.

    There is real potential here for this stock to trade upwards of $50 a share within two years if everything falls right and possibly much much higher.

    The Nokia patents are vital to mobile handsets and Vringo has the expertise to monetize those patents for Nokia.

    Google is just icing on the cake. If Vringo wins that, it alone could propel the stock to $15.

    And I going to enjoy reading 'the record'

    Injunctive relief can also be sought pursuant to terms of the NDA itself

    No Vringo is entitled to a billion or two for patents and breach of NDA which won't bankrupt ZTE

    @gob

    All briefs have already been distributed to the SC, conference scheduled for September 25th (or 28th, can't remember...) with a ruling expected October 5th or 12th.

    Vringo's attorneys feel they require up to 12 pages to list the sanctions they are seeking.

    This is going to be good.

  • Vringo +15.7%; company demands ZTE produce all "responsive documents" [View news story]
    In new SDNY document released today, Vringo's attorneys are requesting leave of the court to file a motion with up to 12 pages of sanctions vs. ZTE instead of the normal 4 pages such motions are limited to.

    They are about to drop the hammer on ZTE in a big big way. Add to your positions accordingly:

  • Ballard Power Systems: Consider On The Drop [View article]
    and so far hydrogen power is in its infancy.

    when it blooms, Ballard will be at the forefront and long-term shareholders' patience will be handsomely rewarded.

    Anything from Google is just icing on the cake. Very very sweet icing.

    The windfall from the Nokia patents, first from ZTE, then from the other infringers, is why I have put everything into this stock.
