IMO, VRNG gauranteed double up, not including very possible WILLFUL infringement ruling by judge. + microsoft settling w/ VRNG in 60 days + ZTE on the ropes in 4 countries and caught red handed infringing VRNG patents. Do the math.
1.4 billion isn't a lot of money to goog (ie9.7blnwasted)
Very true. However, should Microsoft buy out Vringo, what will this mean for Google?
The main reason I posted what I did is to let peeps know Vringo is worthy of a look & DD as possible investment.
Also, what will Google do when Vringo reups its patents April 2016? Continue to pay royalties, buy out or find work around? Afterall, a lot of Google's ad revs came from Vringo patents.
