    Microsoft/Nevada

    All the legal fireworks are centered on the recent Cisco and Apple suits...Yet, quietly, this MSFT/Skype suit could be a nice positive for VHC after their recent difficulties with the two aforementioned companies.

    Assuming that Skype uses VHC products, it seems hard to believe that MSFT would litigate this to the bitter end in light of the licensing deal VHC struck with MSFT several years ago...If VHC has a straightforward argument for its contention that Skype is infringing, I would think MSFT would agree to settle, rather than "go to the mats" over this one.

    If VHC wins, it should restore some luster to the VHC story.....

    Did VHC move to Nevada for just the scenery? Or, were they motivated by 13% state/local taxes in CA versus zero in Nevada, esp if they believe they will be coming into signficant revenue from licensing streams in the near tuture (the next 12-24 months).

    Apple and Cisco will exhaust almost all legal avenues before ever paying a dime to VHC...MSFT may not wish to antagonize VHC again,esp after their first legal loss.
    Just my thoughts
