    Does ALU have any valuable Patents?

    After the Purchase of Bell Labs, ALU is sitting a Treasure Chest of Patents. Recent estimates put their Patents at over $15 Billion. These estimates were Done by LRC and Associates in 2009

    • The patents may be old or obsolete. Patents dont last forever and technology changes. But that said, all the Bell Labs patents went with them and at the time, they were valuable. If they are still in force and applicable to todays usage, yes, ALU would have a great deal of value to someone. But remember, Goog only wants them to go to court with, not to use to innovate anything.
