|This is the meeting on the 18th (I believe) that could make this recent runup look like nothing if they validate vhc's patents as essential for the 4g industry.|
""The most recent mover of the three has been VirnetX (VHC). Over the past two weeks the stock has more than doubled from the $13 range. What is driving this movement in part is the companies recent announcement that it has submitted a Statement of Patent Holder with the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Standards (ATIS) and European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), supplementing its prior statement of December 1, 2009, identifying patents and patent applications that may be relevant to the following specifications in the 3GPP LTE, SAE project. The 3GPP LTE project is responsible for setting standards for the next Generation 4G networks. VirnetX contention is its patents may be essential for some of the 4G LTE security specifications without which you will be unable to implement 4G. This is exactly what Qualcomm did many years ago and it obviously was very successful. Their claim of foundational IP could result in billions of dollars of licensing over the next ten years clearly making the company a highly attractive acquisition target. VirnetX also recently announced the award of a new patent which it is including in their current litigation and this includes Apples series of products: iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch, iPad, and iPad 2.""
