It amazes me that even some of the sharper people on this board don't get it. I've spoken to a couple lawyers this afternoon who are in VHC. The part of today's PR that stuck out most to them, as it did to me, was the fact that K Larsen stated they will be dropping the ITC complaint. These lawyers bought more stock today based on that very statement. They said, matter of factly, that VHC is dropping the complaint because they already have a settlement with AAPL. They might have a bit more negotiation on the products and maybe even the royalty rate, but they have a settlement. Both agreed that there's absolutely no way VHC drops this comlaint with the ITC because they're being nice guys all of a sudden. They have a deal!! I'm shocked nobody if focusing on this.
Anything you say is tainted to begin with by the following statement.

No lawyer is going to discuss an ongoing litigation with anyone outside the firm or it's client. Especially in a high profile case like this. Do you actually think anyone here believes that you just pick up the phone or drop into their offices to discuss the case and get their opinion. Absurd.. in the Extreme. Thus any other comments are by fruit of the tree and equally absurd. You may be right in the fact that APPL and VHC are in back and forth exchanges of offers and counteroffers right now. Would not surprise me in the slightest but I nor anyone else has and INSIDE knowledge of that. Or if they do they would not say so here. Unless there are of course an idiot. Ergo...
