    Batteries are a non-option for large vehicles like buses and trams. For that, hydrogen is the only option.

    Batteries while all the rage at the moment will be an afterthough once hydrogen productions becomes simple, mainstream and affordable.

    That day is coming a lot sooner than you think.

    So are we realizing that hydrogen cars are going to give BEV a run for their money?

    Once again your ignorance of this matter is on display for all to see.

    Nokia will receive 35% of the proceeds generated through Vringo's enforcement of said patents.

    You did answer your own question though in that the reason Nokia didn't want to expend it's own resources and instead contracted out the expertise of Vringo is because they are undergoing a turnaround and the litigation would have been taxing.

    All you have to do is research who Vringo now is to see that the have top tier lawyers and counsel. They did after all retain Boies to fight Vringo.

    And as to what is fair and reasonable is yet to be determined but I am betting very large that a fair rate will be many multiples of the current market cap and ZTE is just the beginning of that monetization.

    ----And, as I mentioned earlier, ZTE can make the case that VRNG's bad faith negotiation could only be revealed by revealing said negotiations. I thought most people hated lawyers? Why defend their perfidy?

    Clearly you don't understand the purpose of a NDA- even assuming that it wasn't made in good faith by Vringo, ZTE had different options available short of disclosing the term sheet publicly! They could have simply refused to entertain any further negotiations and wait to defend themselves in litigation, or commence their own, but BY KEEPING THE NDA UNDER SEAL. I hope you understand the significance of that.

    Also this isn't solely about lawyers trying to extort practicing entities this is about defending Nokia's intellectual property, property which most all other non-chinese companies have LICENSED from Nokia. Vringo is the specialist entity to defend those proprietary rights.

    We are not defending lawyers we are try to ward off blatant theft of IP by a foreign company who is using it to compete with domestic enterprises without having to pay the same rates to use technology that belongs to someone else.

    That's simply an irrational conclusion which you cannot draw from an isolated case such as Vringo v. Google. SCOTUS probably never even read the briefs, their clerks were likely on the take.

    In any event the patents in question vs. ZTE, which forms the investment thesis for Vringo, are very much in play and being upheld around the world.

    Heck, ZTE itself doesn't even try to dispute their validity in the USA, they agree they are infringing and filed suit seeking a fair determination of FRAND rates to use the patents.

    You just have lost the forest for the trees.

    How about along with the NDA breach, in itself extremely damaging in that Vringo is trying to establish a rate to license out Nokia's 4G/LTE patents, all of the other nefarious actions that ZTE engaged in including:

    1. Giving the NDA breach to a global PR firm with guidelines to release negative PR against Vringo

    2. Drafting up a 'Countermeasures' plan attack vs. Vringo where it clearly stated that the share price of Vringo was its weakness and that is where ZTE ought to attack.

    3. Designating 115 employees to focus on harming Vringo's perception and share price via planting nefarious posters in chat rooms and on bulletin boards (are you perhaps one of these?)

    4. Underhandedly seeking, and temporarily obtaining, a TRO when ZTE was also saying out of the other side of their mouth that they wanted to settle and had a meeting with Vringo WHILE their lawyers were going to court to get a phony TRO (later voided by the Judge who felt embarrassed about his mistake in granting it in the first place)

    5. Disclosing their documents to Vringo in Chinese, to which they were reprimanded by the Court and told to translate, and then...wait for it...doing it AGAIN to the tune of 300,000 pages on Friday

    6. To refusing to produce the key witness of the case, their head counsel, claiming fears he will be arrested by the FBI for supplying hardware to Iran behind sanctions...

    and that's just off the top of my head.

    There is going to be MASSIVE punitive damages awarded against ZTE for their actions. Kaplan has warned them to stop digging their grave and they just don't listen.

    Like I've said a few times here Robert, you are clearly out of your league, you have some basic understanding of math and programming but continue to demonstrate a complete ignorance of the law, of due process, of negotiating in good faith, of contractual obligation, etc.

    Please, give it a rest.

    Here is my take on where we stand after a couple developments from late yesterday:

    1. Google, Edelman, etc. discovery about to be wrapped up.

    2. All motions before Justice Maas have completed, nothing now for him to do.

    3. Kaplan has been sitting on the Motion for Sanctions for some time and many believe that he will make a decision in the next two weeks.

    4. If he grants motion for Vringo then, in a rational universe, the stock should jump and jump significantly. (I will be buying a lot that day)

    5. ZTE just dumped 300,000 pages of discovery on Vringo...in Chinese...this despite being ordered to translate the chinese the last time. Is ZTE trying to slap Kaplan in the face on purpose?? It almost seems as so.

    6. In any event, expect a new order to translate the document by the Court upon a motion by Vringo early this week.

    7. Due to the sudden production of documents, Vringo requested that the timeframe for expert discovery be bumped 45 days to March 10, 2016. At this time expert reports will be due for the court to decide damages.

    So, assuming I am correct in the above, it means that we are still a ways off from putting a dollar sum on this, getting the damage award by the court and collecting/sanctions.

    I think I know why Vringo did not ask for an injunction even though the NDA called for it yet (although they still might) but it seems to be against their best interest to do so. They want ZTE to continue growing their business because the more business ZTE does, the more Vringo will collect. The move for an injunction would only likely be made once the damages have been set and ZTE won't pay.

    That's when you pull out the big guns and the charade is over.

    Snooze made this post over at iHub:

    Prediction:

    If ZTE is held accountable for its actions by US authorities to the tune of $1b or more, anti-competitive behavior or similar charges will be announced in PRC against CSCO, INTC, MSFT, AAPL and/or others... PRC already clipped QCOM for nearly $1b

    One thing seems certain, they ain't going to just role over and pay and get nothing but "a level playing field" in the worldwide smart phone and cellular equipment market in exchange

    I have limited knowledge with US bankruptcy law, let alone Chinese, however here is a short article to explain the difference between chp.7 and chp. 11 bankruptcies...

    I believe that in each jurisdiction that ZTE operates it would be beholdent to those laws.

    Their assets would be seized and distributed to the secured creditors first then unsecured creditors.
