VRNG will be worth $600 Million after the settlement
This is an infringement for sure. No doubt. Could have been 1 Billion had the judge not ruled the damages before Sept 2011, however, GOOGLE will have to settle for a lump sum of 500 Million inclusive of future royalties. This will jump the share price to $10.
Also have little doubt that VRNG will appeal latches decision by judge. Good chance they will win and that opens the door to more damages. If they win and then appeal Google is back on the hook for more damages.
Imagine what would happen in today's industry if patent infringement was easy to get away with. There is absolutely no doubt that VRNG will receive a lump sum. GOOGLE will settle for it, future royalties will be a pain in GOOGLE's #$%$.
End of story. I would want the stock market to freeze tomorrow until the verdict.
