  • Vringo Shares Are Worth More Than Current Market Price  [View article]
    I wasn't talking about the court filing timeframe but rather by the nature of relief sought (permanent injunction) and the scope of revenue that is caught under the patents. Last year 550M and rapidly scaling up.

    Forget FliCharge. DirectTV looks to be massive.

    Do your due diligence and you'll see what I mean.

    You just made my point Strike. Those sums are paltry for WIN as compared to what Vringo's management are swinging for!

    As for FliCharge tech I admit I do not know the strength of their patents however judging from what Vringo management has focused on thus far in enforcing: Lycos, Nokia, DirectTV I'm betting that FliCharge's IP is very well-entrenched in the wireless conductive field.

    Strike,

    I care not for WILN or how it is valued, as i said the entire industry has been under immense pressure but that will change as the fundamental revenues from licensing can no longer be ignored or swept under the table ( or in the alternative, the IP companies will issue special dividends to reward their shareholders with the spoils).

    As for FliCharge's competitors in the conductive sphere do you know that they are not infringing on FliCharge's patents?

    Thanks BBare and Strike for your thoughtful posts.

    I respond as follows:

    First, Strike, it is YOU who is between stages 2 and 3, not I.

    I am definitely discouraged by the ZTE settlement however I also do not feel that 21.5M is the end of the story. I believe that there will be future goodwill between ZTE and Vringo, via FliCharge that has not materialized as yet. Otherwise at the very least the settlement prices the patents at between 300-400M should Vringo be able to collect on the rest of the infringers.

    So insofar as the NOK 4G/LTE patents go, I'm disappointed but still recognize that there is untapped potential there for significant returns.

    The reason why I have optimism is simple: The management of the company. WHAT? you scream....well they did a magnificent job vs. Google and with ZTE but in both cases had to yield to forces beyond their control. (politics and being under-capitalized to slog it out with ZTE)

    But now look at the current landscape: there is a significant lawsuit vs. DirectTV that appears to be deep in settlement talks. Who handpicked these patents to go after? Management. What will their worth be? remains to be seen but realize this- last year alone DirectTV earned 550M directly on the technology that Vringo claims it owns.

    I am bullish on management because besides their out of this world resumes they have a patent trove of 500+ to slowly begin to monetize. I am left salivating thinking about how they will use those 5 patents that they received from Microsoft in the Lycos patent settlement. And who know what else is cooking behind the scenes.

    Speaking of which let's turn our attention to FliCharge and the conductive wireless technology. It has clear advantages to inductive charging. Which will win the day? It looks to me that BOTH will have their useful applications- simply because inductive can't do what conductive can do but conductive requires that extra physical connection. So I see small power users going inductive and users with larger needs having a conductive plate in their homes, offices, schools, boats, cars, etc. The jury is still very out on how wireless will shake out. FliCharge's technology will have its place, even if FliCharge is not the company to bring it to mass production (they instead will collect a royalty).

    I am also wise enough to realize that the drop in Vringo's share price is not specific to Vringo alone. The entire IP enforcement sector is getting bludgeoned to death by the market...and the market itself is in free-fall. So I know that this is a system-wide downturn and not a problem with Vringo nor its business model.

    At the end of the day you have to ask yourself whether you believe in the property ownership rights and the rule of law. I can understand after the Google debacle if you are shaken in this but also recognize that globally IP law is being upheld.

    The tide will turn and when it does you'll be happy that you held onto your shares and accumulated more when the market is valuing Vringo at 60% of their current cash when there is a major settlement on the horizon!

    Be greedy when others are fearful and buy when there is blood on the streets.

    Yogi out.

    Well apparently FliCharge owns patents that they are proud of and that Vringo's expertise management decided was worth diluting 11.4% of the company to acquire and presumably enforce.

    unsure if the warranty would be voided.

    what is key is that conductive charging takes hold even in a niche way as FC owns the patents for that tech no matter who manufactures the actual products.

    simple: FC creates a cover that enables charging with their technology.

    Which they have.

    those players are backing Qi or inductive charging which has severe limitations:

    1. Can only charge one device at a time and that device has to be precisely lined up for it to charge.

    2. Cannot charge devices/equipment that requires more power such as laptops and power tools.

    3. Emits a LOT more radiation that conductive charging.

    FliCharge's technology allows the user to:

    1. Power multiple devices at the same time and these devices can range in their wattage needs.

    2. Can power up to 150W

    3. Emits little to no radiation (same as wired charging)

    PACER released after hours requesting deadline in DirectTV matter be extended until February 2nd due to parties's "ongoing and productive efforts to settle this case".

    Bbare I will happily but your shares so you can get out and not be so frustrated anymore. Thx

    Armageddon for bottom fishers indeed once it becomes known that reverse split was merely for staying listed and not because the underlying intrinsic value of the company was shot.

    Then you are going to see fireworks when the settlement announcements and licensing deals start to roll in.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see management holding them back to unleash full fury on the naysayers and short sellers.

    They are going to feel the burn.

    Bigtime.

    Way way way too early to draw any conclusions about Vringo's worth.

    The game is just beginning. Google was a billion dollars that was stolen from us due to politics and those patents were just a drop in the bucket of what Vringo owns.

    Patience here is key.

    A year from now you'll thank me.


    Five years from now you'll be naming your children Lev.

    Flounder:

    Google had/has nothing to do with the NOK patents. Google was implicated in the Lycos patents.

    Do your due diligence before you arrive throwing heated misinformation around.
