Longer IDCC allows the process...the lower it's price
More companies will look over the patents to make make a valid high bid?
There's only a handful of companies with deep pockets, or they decide to team up to outbid another group. Would be interesting if there are multiple teams to make an offer, say APPL & MSFT vs INTL/Samsung/GOOG.
IDCC going into the 50s might be a bad omen - hope not. Low volume but still in a bad market correction.
