... remember when PTSC became only the second small cap corporation in History to pay out a dividend ... the first being Walmart ??? Well, today I see another board of directors who want to SHARE too ... check the POZN news ... now, there's a pretty nice "wow" ... I'm still holding my PTSC, after all, they did share some. ... As they say, I have to admit I've been long on POZN too. regards
Except patent 336 is not "poorly granted" and has been vindicated by 17 patent office exams and a finding of infringement against HTC by a federal court in Northern California. Over 100 companies have signed up for licenses, including the notoriously litigant APPL. The patent is legit. It is the stupid way it has been handled by the corporate stewards at PTSC. BTW, Patriot was also found to have a legitimate Domestic industry by the ITC as well. However, its too little, to late, as the patents only have 1.5 years left. Play the pops, that is all that is left here..........

(Reuters) - A U.S. congressional panel on Wednesday approved a bill targeting patent "trolls," companies that buy or license patents from others and then aggressively pursue licensing fees or file infringement lawsuits.
The House of Representatives Judiciary Committee voted 33-5 to send to the full House a measure that appeared to have the best chance of reining in patent assertion entities, known derisively as "trolls."
The White House in June urged Congress to take steps to curb abusive patent lawsuits that have sprung up in recent years, particularly in the technology sector.
The patent reform bill, introduced by Representative Robert Goodlatte, was approved after Goodlatte stripped out a measure that would have changed how the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office reviews software patents to determine if they are valid.
The bill aims to fight frivolous patent litigation. In one case, a patent assertion entity, or PAE, demanded licensing payments from retailers who provided services to customers such as free Wi-Fi.
"Within the past couple of years we have seen an exponential increase in the use of weak or poorly granted patents against American businesses with the hopes of securing a quick payday," said Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican, who chairs the committee.
"These suits target a settlement just under what it would cost for litigation, knowing that these businesses will want to avoid costly litigation and probably pay up," Goodlatte said at the committee session in which the bill was approved.
I can see I hurt your "feelings" dummy. You should be selling fool. The ITC commission will NOT be reviewing this case most likely. You should actually read the publicly available info but you are too dumb and lazy. Learn to use a search engine! ROFLMAO!
Oh, NOW I see. DUMPING those shares in the US is what caused the price to rise 9 1/2 %. I think you should look in the mirror and see the real Dummy.
I guess it makes you feel like a big man calling a faceless person on a message board "Dummy." You are a sorry excuse for humanity, not to mention being a coward. But you have to live with yourself.
Nice day to make some money on my sub 10 cent shares. This stock is a GOLDMINE!!!
Whats your average on the 437000 shares you own, Geoffy?? Still got those 2 plus dollar shares you picked up in aught six and aught seven ?? Thanks for making this Christmas Season a Very Happy One, Bagholders!!!
Nothing dummy. It is a currency arbitrage scheme to take advantage of the strong recent fluctuations between the dollar and the euro. Its been going on a long time with PTSC. It was so bad in the past that PTSC asked and got the Berlin stock exchange to delist them. Whenever you see volume in europe you see follow though in the US the next day as those shares are dumped.
Hiya there Geoffy. Hows that EDIG stock?? did you get the 175k you lost back yet? Ya Falkin IDIOT!!!!!!!!
This looks like "dandiamond63" talking to himself using different aliases! Very funny dummy. You better sell now because 10 pennies is a GIFT!
dandiamond63 .....Appreciate the detailed summary.
Wow, I am screwed then ...I bought this back in 1999-2000 time frame for 5.00/share-all time highs (I was a newbie).......I really thought it would have another high volume/price run up again someday...but all the PTSC BOD's did was bleed this company dry with no consideration to stockholders. It never donned on me about the patent expiration coming down the road in 1.5 yrs. Well there goes 9k down the drain!
Time for you to find a new drug dealer. No one, especially on Agoracom, is suing anybody. What, really, would you sue for, dummy?? They have NO MONEY!! How will you prove anything?? You have no proof, only a bunch of baseless accusations and innuendos from a bunch of disgruntled shareholders who held on to their RISKY INVESTMENT for much too long. You are, and continue to be, an ill informed dope. Go smoke some more thai stick, you Idiot...........
they have milked shareholders while they padded their bank accounts. basically lied and stole it would appear. some at agoracom are thinking carlton must be in collusion with tpl.
Swish from the corner for 3!!!
Drive the lane made the lay-up and made the foul shot!!!
eeeeeeennnnnnnhhhhhhh! the buzzer goes off, and we win!!!
Based on the fact that they will not generate enough cash in licensing fees to keep the company afloat AND keep 16 thousand plus shareholders happy. Unless they get 8 figure licensing numbers, there is just not enough cash to make this thing work for BOTH the company and the shareholders. You -"might"- see a 1 or 2 cent divvy, just to throw the shareholders a bone and shut em up. They waited too long to get serious about their licensing program, and there is only 1.5 years left on the patent. The court win was nice for the future of the licensing program, BUT PTSC's credibility as a company is shot. They have discounted their main asset, the 336 patent, to many of the largest technology companies in the world. That fact, in and of itself, lets future licensing prospects look up what other companies paid. Which is enough to keep the doors open, the lawyers paid and the BOD paid. And NADA for retail shareholders. Play it for the short term pop, but that is about all your gonna get here. I sold out of 2 million shares on the last pop. Made a nice bundle, and will make for a nice holiday season. There are no penny stock riches here, look elsewhere, maybe EDIG......... "snicker"................
