That is only until the court orders ZTE to make a payment to Vringo. Once money begins to flow to Vringo this will be the rocket fuel Vringo has been needing. Pay me now or pay me later but ZTE will end up paying. When is the only question?
You're entitled to your opinion (wrong as it may be) and I'll keep mine. I've read Land's account in his court papers. If it walks like a Duck etc...
Of course Google doesn't agree with me. GOOG is not an ethical firm. If it were they would have never infringed Vringo's Patent. They actually stole Lang's invention and used it to become the Google we know today. But, now you know the rest of the story.
I responded to your main topic not a shadow topic as you did. But, there are many reasons GOOG would buy another that's not making money. Just a few would be that GOOG could save many millions in legal fees and protect itself by hiding behind all the Patents that VRNG has. Also, as a loss to shelter some of the huge profits that GOOG has. It would be a smart move. Of course, not a Billion to move from the right pocket to the left. You know that makes no sense. But, neither did you make sense with that dumb topic heading?
Wow, that is really stupid. I guess you never heard of Amazon did you? How many years has it been in business and it still has NEVER made a profit. Last year it lost .52 cents a share but the darn company is worth 196 Billion. Who is dumb now?
