    Goog can't just say, "OK, I'll just buy Vrngo."--

    People who say that Goog can just decide to wake up some day and say, "Today I think we'll buy Vrngo." are very misinformed about what can happen at this stage. Things don't work that way. There are many hurdles a prospective publicly-held company must overcome in order to buy another publicly-held company with 90 or 100 million shareholders.

    It's very, very complicated, and you know what? WE"LL all have a say in any such decision, directly or indirectly! There are dozens and dozens of factors that would enter in, and upcoming trial would be long over before any such decision would come to pass.

    I can't imagine that the VRNG officials would agree to forget the trial in hopes that, during the upcoming months a purchase MIGHT go through.

    • If you're the CEO and can get a deal for your shareholders at 10 times ($30.00) the price of your last days trade you'll have little worry about pleasing your board or shareholders. That deal can be done with a majority vote in a day if you have enough voting shares at an emergency meeting on the phone. And, I'm darn sure they have an agreed price for this deal already approved for just such a deal being offered.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • not bad "problems" to have

    • what happens to the pps if VRNG settles for little cash and more percentage of revenue from GooG in the out years kind of what we are doing with NOK paying them 35% of our revenues once a ceiling is reached. I would guess the so called BET would then turn into a huge investment for all of us??? Its a win win short or long term depending on if VRNG wants to stay in the Mix or just settle or sell out, lot of varibles but all in longs favor here

    • Yes. Yes, they can. Controlling interest in GOOG is on group speed dial and if they want to divert Applegedden, they'll act in concert and quickly. If they need better counsel to tie up the transaction, they can call Don Stout.

      Sentiment: Buy

      • Goog guys can have all the people they want on speed dial, but the decision to sell is made by the SELLER, not a prospective buyer. Stout's fiduciary duty to shareholders extends beyond a private call from the GOOG guys. There are other lawsuits to be considered, other prospective defendants to be considered, SEC considerations, possible self-interest considerations by company officers, company procedures to be followed, etc. especially with only a few days within which to kill a trial. If VRNG agrees not to try this case, this trial will never take place. A SETTLEMENT is a possibility, but a SALE in the next few days? No way, imo.

      • Problem: how to buy Vringo quickly to make it go away.
        Solution: "SHOW ME THE MONEY!!!"

        Sentiment: Buy
