    It flies in the face of reason to think IDCC could sell for less than Nortel. However I do not think it will go for as much as MMI. I think that was an anomaly caused by an overeager and ill advised Google.

    But the bottom line is, and this has to be considered by all the longs and shorts alike, EVERY authoritative article written on the quality and relevance of the IP puts IDCC AHEAD of Nortel and MMI.

    Sleep with that little fact shorty.

      You are forgetting that in the MMI deal, Google got a 13 Billion dollar revenue stream that is projected to have a 3% profit of 415 million in 2012. With some tinkering on expenses Google can probably get that up to 6-7% pretty quick. That alone is a better return than their $12 billion in cash purchase price was currently getting. And they get all of the MMI patents for free.

        actually what google got in mmi was a tax write off from all the $ mmi looses every year but at least google pre empted mmi crossing over to thier competitors os even if it did piss off the other android manufacturers. goog does not have majic wand or the expertse to convert the mmi operating losses into a money maker overnight.

    • MMI sold for the same as Nortel...$750,000 per patent...take that by 17,000 and you get $12.5...IDCC is looking for $6.5 billion or more.

      "sleep with that little fact shorty." First of all I'm not short, and second of all I haven't been sleeping much being an engineer major and invested a huge chuck of my assets into IDCC options...I will be celebrating when the deal happens and spend the money on things that I should have bought in the last couple years when I had a big bank roll, but I was being greedy and fell in love with some stocks that owned that were making me losts of money (that are way over sold at this point).

      That's why Lind pisses me off...he's undermining my hopes and dreams lol
