The Saga Continues Between UnifiedOnline/Chanbond & The 13 Cable Companies

Fairfax, VA, 03-Aug-2018 — /EPR Financial News/ — UnifiedOnline, Inc. acquired 100 percent membership interest of ChanBond, LLC on 27th October 2015. That was a portfolio of patents through which the company understands that there is a technology that allows all the major cable companies to offer high-speed data transmission over the hybrid-fiber coaxial networks. UOIP purchased Chanbond for $5,000,000 payable before October 2020 along with 44,700,000 shares of the common stock. On 21st September 2015, Chanbond files a lawsuit in District Court of U.S. against the 13 biggest cable MSOs in the country. Chanbond claims that every cable multi-system operator in the country is virtually using DOCSIS 3.0+ which is infringing upon its patents. The three alleged infringement of wideband signal distribution system patents are:

Patent #1: 7,941,822

Patent # 2: 8,341,679

Patent # 3: 8,984,565

One of the major cable modem manufacturer Cisco filed eight interparty reviews on these patents. Six of the Cisco IPRs on patent 2, and 3 were not established for IPR. Only one of eight interparty reviews was established for IPR on March 3, 2017. Chanbond and the legal team of Mishcon de Reya New York LLP which is a respected law firm are appealing the single IPR that Cisco got.

ChanBond, LLC v. Cisco Systems, Inc.

Federal Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals

Case #:            0:18-bcaag-01886

Case Files: Apr 26, 2018

ARRIS International PLC also filed for five interparty reviews on these patents, but on July 27, 2018, the PTAB denied Arris a hearing because the petition is time-barred. Arris and Cisco are not being sued; only the thirteen cable companies are being sued for the infringement. However, the modem manufacturers are trying to invalidate the patents because their clients are at risk of patent infringement and Arris International has made it public that they have indemnified certain cable companies. This is from the “ARRIS Form” 10-K filed for March 31, 2018

From page 47 ARRIS INTERNATIONAL PLC FORM 10-K

https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1645494/000119312518066821/d505150d10k.htm 

“ChanBond v. MSOs, C.A. 15-cv-00848, et al, District of Delaware (RGA). On September 21, 2015, ChanBond filed suit against several MSOs alleging infringement of three US Patents. Certain of our customers have requested that we provide indemnification. The complaint requests unspecified damages for infringement and injunction against future infringement. To date, no evidence of infringement or damages has been introduced. It is premature to assess the likelihood of an unfavorable outcome. In the event of an unfavorable outcome, ARRIS may be required to indemnify the MSOs and/or pay damages for utilizing certain technology.

Throughout all of this UnifiedOnline has remained quiet and if you search UOIP on OTCMarkets the company is listed as Caveat Emptor (buyer beware) and as Delinquent SEC reporting. On October 26, 2014, UnifiedOnline Inc. submitted the necessary 13-D with the SEC (https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1097718/000135448815005061/uoip_sc13d.htm) that they were operating in the dark. The sole manager of the company is William R. Carter, Jr. and he is the one who has exclusive and sole authority over all the activities and operations.

During this time there have been no comments from UOIP, but do not let that cloud your judgment about the validity of the company, its patents, or this case. Bear in mind that UnifedOnline retains Mishcon de Reya New York LLP which is a respected law firm, representing a diverse portfolio of clients in more than 60 countries with more than 200 litigators across New York and London. UnifiedOnline has been under the microscope of the 13 largest cable companies in the United States (billion dollar corporations) and the Federal Court System. If there were a hint of scam or any wrongdoing no one would be wasting time, energy, and money to fight these patents. Do not confuse silence on UOIP’s part with sound legal recommendations.

Keep yourself informed with the court schedule, but keep in mind that this may settle or UOIP could be bought out any moment between now and the actual trail.

Consumer Loan Market Is Growing

New York, NY, USA, 2018-Jul-03 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — During last ten years, there were significant investments in the personal loans market. It was possible due to the inflow of capital and innovative technologies, which caused a doubling of the market.

Although, according to many financial websites, originations of personal loans are falling. It started with refusals to borrowers with a credit rating below 600, which didn’t take place since 2012.

Despite the decline in the origination of loans, all other data shows an increase of interest of the borrowers to this bank product.

The market for unsecured loans grew by 10.8% in 2017. And financial analytics are talking now about a great prospect for the development of this market segment.

According to statistics in 2017, 10% of respondents applied for a personal unsecured loan, a greater interest was shown to credit cards (65%) and auto loans (26%).

Banking CEOs are Concerned About FinTech

The lending market has a long history and now it is experiencing one of the most historical phases.

One of the biggest changes became a rapid development of FinTech (financial technologies).

Several years ago banks and other traditional financial structures were skeptical about online loans. Now 81% of banking CEOs are worried about such fast FinTech development.

Such concerns are reinforced by the fact that financial Internet structures have become quite competitive. Applying to a lender online, via a certain website connecting the customers with the direct service providers, the borrower gets a wide choice: unsecured personal loans, same day loans, debt consolidation etc. In addition to this sophisticated credit models and new anti-fraud mechanisms makes online financial services more attractive than banks.

The Most Popular Loans

According to the last statistic data, the most popular loan products are unsecured personal loans and installment loans. These loans are the most convenient and profitable for the borrowers. Same day payday loans are also popular, but they are most often used in urgent cases when money is needed for a short period of time. In such cases, 24/7 loans are more convenient, since it is easy to get and the money is being accrued to the bank account of a borrower in short period of time.

The thing that makes personal loans one of the most attractive types of financial products is its uniqueness. It can be used for any purpose: making a big purchase, paying for a wedding or vacation, etc. However, the most common reasons for obtaining a personal loan currently are:

1. Debt consolidation (35%).
2. Household expenses (19%).
3. Medical expenses (9.9%).

Statistic data shows that the purpose of the loan doesn’t affect the chances of the borrower to get approved.

Summing up, the consumer credit market is experiencing rapid growth. Personal loans are attractive to the borrowers because of the affordable interest rate and quick receipt of funds. FinTech is developing and expanding, thus the number of lenders increases and the borrowers have a wide choice.

Worldcore: 15 countries where you may encounter problems with cryptocurrency transactions or mining

PRAGUE, Czech Republic, May-10-2018 — /EuropaWire/ — 2018-2019 may be called the era of cryptocurrency regulation. After we’ve followed ICO success stories in 2016-2017, in the next 1.5-2 years we will observe various countries bringing cryptocurrencies and related processes, such as ICOs and smart contracts, out into the legislative framework.

Worldcore international company has comprised a rating of countries according to the stringency of their cryptocurrency regulations. It starts with the countries where cryptocurrencies are entirely banned, followed by those states where cryptocurrency circulation is not merely significantly restricted, but also criminalized in the framework of the national financial legislation.

Thus, there are currently four countries in the world where residents may end up in prison for several years for any cryptocurrency transactions.

  1. Nepal
  2. Bolivia
  3. Bangladesh
  4. Algeria, a recent addition to the list.

Besides the countries with criminalized cryptocurrency trade and ownership, there are numerous countries where a national ban has been imposed on specific types of cryptocurrency transactions. The degree of regulation in this sphere varies notably — from a ban on using cryptocurrency as legal tender (common in countries that have not legalized free cryptocurrency circulation) and to a complete ban on exchanges and ICOs in China (which enterprising Chinese enthusiasts forego by launching hard forks of popular currencies as ICOs and trading on foreign exchanges). Here’s a list of these states:

  1. China (ban on ICO, buying and selling cryptocurrency, advertising)
  2. India (since April 2018, the Central Bank of India has forbidden buying or selling cryptocurrency; cryptocurrency also isn’t recognized as legal tender)
  3. Russia (when cryptocurrency market regulation legislative proposal comes into effect, it will limit the legal annual transaction volume to 50,000 rubles for unqualified investors; allow purchase and sale exclusively on registered national platforms, provide for full participant de-anonymization; mining will be considered an entrepreneurial activity with mandatory sale of the mined assets on national exchanges; cryptocurrency/crypto-token will be recognized as a digital asset, but not legal tender). Cryptocurrency advertising is forbidden on certain platforms (i.e. Yandex).
  4. Vietnam (stringent national anti-money laundering regulations; gradual legalization is planned starting in August 2018)
  5. Indonesia (a ban on purchase and sale of cryptocurrency)
  6. Thailand (in February 2018, the Central Bank of Thailand has forbidden five key transactions with cryptocurrencies to financial institutions: investment, trading, establishment of cryptocurrency platforms, using credit and debit cards to purchase currency and consulting people on cryptocurrency investments).
  7. Kyrgyzstan (cryptocurrency is not recognized as legal tender, liberalization of regulations is currently under consideration)
  8. Ecuador
  9. Iceland (under the umbrella prohibitive currency regulation)
  10. Morocco
  11. Malaysia

“In the countries that have restricted cryptocurrency circulation and mining, it primarily involves cryptocurrency as a digital asset coming under the restrictions of investment or money laundering regulations. Perhaps, these states will address the issue of cryptocurrency regulation later, when the more developed countries establish adequate legislation and provide positive examples of regulation and taxation. Another aspect of the ban, i.e. in China or Ecuador, is the clearing out of the competition prior to launching a national cryptocurrency. Many countries today are implementing a partial, rather than a full ban on cryptocurrency. In case of cryptocurrencies, governments understand that it is impossible to ban them entirely. With regard to the globalization of economy and  distributed registry technologies, which form the foundation for cryptocurrencies, a complete ban will lead not only to the migration of financial assets and mining farms out of the country, but also to the departure of startups outside the country’s jurisdiction, startups that could have become taxpayers in the presence of supportive regulations,” believes Alexey Nasonov, the founder and CEO of Worldcore.

Schuster Manfred Hubert: Crude oil prices will average $60/b in 2018 and $61/b in 2019

BEIJING, China, 01-Mar-2018 — /EuropaWire/ — Crude oil prices will average $60/b in 2018 and $61/b in 2019. That’s an increase from last month’s Short-Term Energy Outlook by the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

In January 2018, oil prices briefly hit $70/b. In December, prices averaged $64/b, the highest monthly average since 2014. Traders responded to the November 30, 2017, OPEC meeting where members agreed to keep production cuts through 2018

Oil prices are almost triple the 13-year low of $26.55/b on January 20, 2016. Six months before that, oil had been $60/b (June 2015). A year earlier, it had been $100.26/b (June 2014). Today’s oil price changes daily. The price of a barrel of West Texas Intermediate oil is $4/b lower than Brent North Sea oil prices. In December 2015, the difference fell to just $2/b when Congress removed the 40-year ban on exports. The EIA forecast that WTI oil will cost $58/b in December 2018. Commodities traders also predict the price of oil in their futures contracts. They predict the price could be anywhere from $40/b to $85/b by December 2018. Prices have been volatile thanks to swings in oil supply versus demand. That’s because the oil industry has changed in fundamental ways.

THE FUTURE.
Schuster Manfred Hubert believes that by 2025, the average price of a barrel of Brent crude oil will rise to $86/b (in 2016 dollars, which removes the effect of inflation). By 2030, world demand will driving oil prices to $95/b. By 2040, prices will be $109/b (again in 2016 dollars). By then, the cheap sources of oil will have been exhausted, making it more expensive to extract oil. By 2050, oil prices will be $117/b, according to Table 3 of the EIA’s Annual Energy Outlook.

Fast Invest will allow users to use their bitcoin or ethereum as collateral for loans in traditional currencies

Essex, UK, 13-Dec-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Fast Invest is excited to announce the launch of its native cryptocurrency token (FIT) during their upcoming ICO launched on December 4th. The FinTech company has been operating since 2015 in the investment loan space, connecting funders with loan-seekers in a peer-to-peer exchange. With more than 8,500 daily users from 36 countries, Fast Invest is expanding into the largely unoccupied cryptocurrency lending sector.

Blockchain-based cryptocurrencies have been rapidly in 2017, racking up a seventeen times (at the time of this press release) increase in market capitalization since the beginning of 2017.  As these financial technologies mature new opportunities arise, especially for unbanked and underbanked populations. This is because digital currencies allow for the exchange of value without the need for central banks or other intermediaries. Fast Invest aims to leverage these developments to democratize investment by allowing people to invest as little as one dollar on their loan platform. This enables users to band together to crowdfund a loan that gets paid back with interest, which can then generate returns for the loan suppliers.

In what may be a first for the industry, Fast Invest will allow users to use their bitcoin or ethereum as collateral for loans in traditional currencies. Due to the nature of smart contracts, loans like this can be executed with very little human input and all parties can be sure that the terms of the loan will be carried out. This is because smart contracts utilize code and mathematics to enforce agreements without the need for human intervention.

By expanding to cryptocurrency-based investment instruments the company aims to reduce friction in the world of P2P investment and loan services. These offerings include a cryptocurrency exchange, digital wallet for holding tokens, cryptocurrency investment services, decentralized lending, and a payment card that can be funded by cryptocurrencies but used like a credit card.

Research: 53% of HNWIs relocating or intending to relocate would expect online banking to be part of an international wealth management proposition

LUXEMBOURG, Nov-16-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — New research from The OneLife Company reveals that ensuring investments are tax efficient and managing international tax commitments are among the top financial priorities for internationally mobile HNWIs. In spite of this, fewer than 40% of relocators feel that their investments are as tax efficient as they need them to be.

The insight points to the growing urgency for wealth managers to tailor solutions and services to international clients. One in four European HNWIs surveyed has previously moved countries to live or work, with a further 13% intending to relocate for the first time in the future. The appetite for international living is rising further among the millennial segment, with the number of relocators and future relocators under the age of 35 rising to 43% and 20% respectively.

The research, carried out in conjunction with wealth insights firm Scorpio Partnership, considered the views of 770 HNWIs from Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The average wealth of participants was EUR2.76 million.

Responses revealed that 46% of individuals relocating or intending to relocate would expect tax advice to be part of an international wealth management proposition. Notably, 27% would also require life assurance to be included within the product suite, with this figure rising to 39% among those under 35.

“Younger generations of clients are more likely to relocate and are clearly more cognizant of the range of benefits – such as portability – which life assurance can provide,” commented Marc Stevens, Chief Executive Officer at OneLife.

The findings also point to the significance of technology for the relocator segment. Online banking was the top requirement in an international wealth management proposition, with 53% of relocators saying this was necessary to manage wealth.

This was affirmed by the fact that individuals who continued to work with their primary wealth manager following relocation referenced quality of tools as the primary reason to stay with the firm. By contrast, a quarter of individuals changing wealth management provider following relocation cited lack of suitable digital services as a motivator to pursue a different relationship.

Robert Berkeley, CEO of INFINOX, comments on this step: ‘INFINOX has built a reputation as a major player in the Forex industry, through underpinning dynamic products with competitive trading parameters and a premium customer experience. At INFINOX, our core value is treating every single client as a partner. In the move to ensure even higher security and the confidence of our clients, we decided to raise our additional clients’ money insurance to £1,000,000 from the previous £500,000. This is our way to show what best practice is, and what integrity and premium client service actually means’.

This type of additional insurance becomes important under extreme circumstances of a firm’s insolvency and where a firm is unable to meet its financial obligations or claims made against it, and enables clients to either claim against Infinox Capital Ltd or the insurance provider. Therefore, this insurance policy provides investors far greater investor protection and compensation rights than ever before.

Recent Rise in the Stock of UOIP and its Relation to ChanBond

Fairfax, VA, Jul-3-2017 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — Unified Online Inc. (UOIP) is an internet and cloud computing company. According to company materials, UOIP provides wireless and fiber broadband service, co-location space and related services. It operates a Network Access Point where clients directly interconnect with a network ecosystem of partners and customers.

The company was created after the acquisition of 100% of the outstanding stock of Computers and Tele-Comm., Inc., a Missouri corporation, and its wholly owned subsidiary, KC NAP, LLC in exchange for 23,921 shares of common stock. In 2013, UOIP announced that it would merge with Storage vendor ICE WEB. With this new business transaction, the company started to provide cloud application services, and cloud storage services that include file sharing and collaboration services.

UOIP has a market cap of $11.33 million. In addition, through the Company’s ICE-WEB Storage Corporation subsidiary, it can deliver online cloud computing application services, other managed services, such as Disaster Recovery, Archive Storage, Redundant File Storage, Redundant Broadband Services and Business Continuity Services.

The company has not put out any recent press, so the recent volatility is now quite noticeable. It is entirely possible that the company has a large order pending that has been undisclosed, or that the company is in negotiations for a buyout, but both are speculative at best.

It currently has negative earnings. It has been volatile since the attack last month by several other cable companies. UOIP’s subsidiary deals with disaster recovery, could be responsible for pushing shares higher.

The Wannacry attack has been pushing up software companies across market since the attack. The virus attacked windows systems that had not been updated and did not include a “critical” patch that had been “issued by Microsoft to remove an underlying vulnerability “. Many organizations, which were not secured, suffered the attack that spread all over the world in the following days. Experts estimate that over 200,000 victims and more than 230,000 computers were infected. The virus did not slow down its activity until late May. Hackers demanded $300 to $600 from each user to recover the encrypted files as ransom. UOIP might be riding this wave along with other sector companies, but it is unclear.

UOIP details intangible assets on the balance sheet; $5,049,383. Diving deeper into that means that the total amount of assets is approximately $5.2 million. Intangible assets could be patents or technologies that are still be developed and could be valued broadly. Above all this, UOIP is currently flagged by the OTC Markets exchange with the “Caveat Emptor” sign, which means that shareholders need to “exercise additional care and perform thorough due diligence before making an investment decision in the company”.

Unified Online Inc. (OTCMKTS: UOIP) is a volatile company with murky evidence behind the rise. Investors should be absolutely careful because the company has not released any press about business moves or investments. Following the bread crumbs leads us nowhere and UOIP could just be riding a temporary wave. This is a stock to watch but also a sector to keep an eye on as well.

On October 27, 2015, Unified Online (UOIP) acquired 100% of the membership interest Chan-Bond, LLC (Chan-Bond), a portfolio of patents that disclose a technology that allows cable companies to provide high-speed data transmission over their existing hybrid-fiber coaxial networks.

Petitioner, RPX Corporation (“RPX”), filed a petition on November 20, 2015, requesting an inter parties review of claims 1–31 of U.S. Patent No. 7,941,822 B2 (Ex. 1001, “the ’822 patent”). Paper 1 (“Pet.”). Patent Owner, Chan-Bond LLC (“Chan-Bond”), filed a Preliminary Response on March 10, 2016. Paper 6 (“Prelim. Resp.”).

Chan-Bond sued several cable company defendants alleging patent infringement of three wideband signal distribution system patents in the District of Delaware in 2015. The defendants included Atlantic Broadband Group, Bright House Networks, Cable One, Cablevision, Cequel Communications, Charter Communications, Comcast Communications, Cox Communications, Mediacom Communications, RCN Telecom Services, Time Warner Cable, Wave-Division Holdings, and Wide-open West Finance (District of Delaware case nos. 15-cv-842 to -854). Non-party Cisco filed eight IPR petitions against the three Chan-Bond patents in September 2016, and a stay was ordered on March 3, 2017 pending the PTAB’s decisions to institute IPR.

Cisco’s IPR petitions had mixed results. The day the stay was ordered the PTAB instituted inter parties review of claims 1,2, 5, 6, 19, 20, 23 and 29 from US Patent 7,941,822 (IPR2016-01744), but denied institution of claims 13 and 14 in a second IPR petition of the ‘822 patent (IPR2016-01746). (Note: RPX filed an IPR petition on claims 1-31 of the ‘822 which was instituted for trial and oral arguments were held in January 2017. A final written decision has not been issued by the PTAB yet. See IPR2016-00234.) On March 29, 2017, six IPR petitions for US Patent Nos. 8,341,679 and 8,984,565 were denied institution.

The PTAB rejected Cisco’s assertion that multiple channels are multiplexed on the same frequency bands, and that code channels or CDMA channels could be an RF channel within the meaning of the ‘679 patent. The panel cited an inconsistent statement by Cisco’s expert which described a FDMA and CDMA hybrid system using Walsh codes: “[t]he mutual orthogonally of Walsh codes allows one particular coded channel to be isolated and decoded from all other coded channels, even though they are all broadcasting on the same RF channel.” (Italics added by the panel). The panel reasoned that this statement referred to a particular frequency band as an “RF channel” and to divisions within the RF channel as “coded channels,” and therefore gave no weight to the expert’s testimony regarding the meaning of “RF channel.”

The PTAB concluded that the term “RF channel” as used in the ‘679 patent “does not include code channels – for example data streams created by CDMA– but instead refers only to frequency bands, such as those created by FDMA.” (Final Written Decision of IPR2016-01898, p. 13.) All six of the IPR petitions of the ‘679 and ‘565 patents were denied based on the claim construction issue and because Cisco’s grounds were based CDMA prior art.

It appears that the one year window after service to file IPRs has passed, so it will be interesting to see if a request for rehearing is filed by Cisco to challenge the panel’s decision. It is not clear if the interpretations proffered by the panel will somehow pose issues for Chan-Bond to enforce its patents as planned, but it has at least avoided further review of the ‘679 and ‘565 patents for now.

The Story of ChanBond’s Fight for its Patent Infringement

Fairfax, VA, Jun-14-2017 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — ChanBond is currently owned by UnifiedOnline (UOIP) and it is in a legal fight with the 13 cable service providers in the country. The important point to understand is that ChanBond has patented a system of frequency distribution, which is unique and dissimilar to the way Cisco describes its RF frequency use.

This means that the company is able to present the fact that all cable service providers that are employing the DOCSIS 3.0+ technology are infringing its patents. ChanBond took it a step further when it filed against the largest cable multi-system operators (MSOs) in the country in the District Court of Delaware.

These companies use high speed transmission of data of fiber-coaxial hybrid networks using a technology which comes under the patents of ChanBond. Cisco has already attempted to deny their claims by filing to get the ChanBond patents invalidated.

However, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) rejected all six petitions from Cisco that asked for reviewing of ChanBond’s patents. PTAB officials indicated that Cisco failed to show that these patents are invalid since the patent company was able to show that they are unique from other patents. Here are the details of the patents under review.

Patent 8,341,679

This patent describes the use of an intelligent system which can distribute digital signals using a wideband signal distribution setup.

Patent 8,894,565

This patent describes the supplementary setup details such as the insertion device and the driving unit. It also includes the rotating tubular member.

ChanBond Wins at PTAB

ChanBond has successfully won a favor delivered by PTAB when it declared that Cisco and different cable companies (RPX) have failed to show that UOIP’s relevant patents should be considered as redundant and invalid. The board clearly expressed that the patents are clearly distinct and there are no grounds to discuss their invalidation.

If we look at the history of this situation, we find that as ChanBond filed against the 13 major cable companies, they had to stop the court proceedings. They decided to challenge the actual patents with the governing body of PTAB. However, their hopes are now severely dented since the board has clearly ruled in favor of ChanBond/UOIP. They now face an uphill battle in any legal setting since this decision is admissible evidence in all courts of the United States.

It is important to understand that ChanBond now holds a key element in all their court cases. The current order provides a proposition for the involved parties to reach a settlement. A look at the official documents also reveal that the court has specifically mentioned that the evidences presented in the court about the technical details of the protocols employed by cable companies fully failed to present that these patents were invalid.

In fact, PTAB found that not only are these patents active, the current methods employed in the industry may be in violation of these patents since they employ their specifically defined methods.

The best way to go about it now is for the cable companies to find a settlement within the appeal which is going on to PTAB, rather than allowing the focus to shift on the court cases in Delaware, which are started by ChanBond/UOIP.

Technical Details of the Case

There are several important details of the petition in PTAB which was filed for 31 claims on November 20, 2015. The patent owner responded using the preliminary response method on March 10, 2016. The court initially found out that the RPX Corporate may have at least a single challenged claim, and proceeded further. ChanBond then filed its Patent Owner’s Response which is a detailed response that describes the details of the patent and how it maintains its originality. RPX in turn, responded with a reply.

The oral hearing on this important dispute occurred on January 30, 2017 and the hearing was also entered into the record. The court adjourned that it held the required jurisdiction and found that the evidence presented by RPX was not sufficient to demonstrate that claims 1-31 were unpatentable according to the laws of 35 USC 102(b) and 103(a).

The DOCSIS 1.1.4 was the main pillar of the claim presented by the cable companies. The court discovered that the concept of a digital stream comprising of multiple coded RF signals was similar in its definition in terms of ChanBond as well as the opposing RPX.

The Court also observed in cases where multiple patents and conditions are under review, it is essential to follow the market practices in order to find relevance. Explicit analysis is essential in such cases, and this too, was the basis of resolving this particular dispute.

RPX suggested that the modern cable modems followed the code already described as the national standard at the time of the application of the ChanBond patents. However, ChanBond asserted that there is no record to show that any national standard was in place at the time of the patents that describe digital stream transmission.

The court summarized that RPX as claimants had to bear the burden of proof. They failed to show that any skilled artisan would have used the same technique as explained in the patents of ChanBond/UOIP. The technological perspective presented by RPX failed to establish that there was any industry practice to use the modem configuration and the set of devices described in the patents of ChanBond in a traditional manner. The court declared that if parties want to seek a judicial review, then they would have to serve the requirements of 37 CFR 90.2.

Effect on UOIP Stocks

Although it is difficult to predict the stock prices as they keep changing over time., we find that being involved in a serious lawsuit can often send the stock prices on a downward spiral. However, there are times when this does not happen, especially if the lawsuit is not well-known or comes from quarters not considered as industry specific. Nevertheless, prior experience shows that winning lawsuits more often than not, produces a positive effect on stock prices.

UnifiedOnline (UOIP) stocks are going to do well over the next few months. They have won this major case in PTAB, and they can now aggressively push the cable companies and Cisco to enter a mutual settlement worth millions of dollars.

The volume of sales of UOIP stocks has been clearly on the rise. Although we may observe some corrections over the next few weeks, it is imperative to note that the stock prices will remain on the high, as investors actively seek to make use of this winning opportunity. This is because the resolution of lawsuits in a positive manner decrease the fear factor among market investors and allow them to be more liberal with the company stocks.

They are more eager to hold on to such stocks, which ultimately provide support to the company. As this particular lawsuit and legal position suits the general position of ChanBond/UOIP, it is natural to find that the stocks will keep rising up. As the news emerges and becomes well known in investors, UOIP will continue to perform positively and reach a better financial position in the next fiscal year.

UOIP Stocks will also soar, since there is a chance now for an expensive settlement. This will provide ChanBond/UOIP with greater monetary resources. This means that they will further expand their operations and continue to excel in the near future.

VIVIER MORTGAGES LIMITED “VML” AND LUIGI WEWEGE MEDIA STATEMENT

DUBLIN, IRELAND, February 24, 2015 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — Over the past few months VML was contacted by Mr Conor Ryan and other reporters working on a programme for RTE, the Irish broadcaster.

It soon became clear that a number of untrue and defamatory allegations – about VML and persons formerly or currently connected with it – would be made in the programme and had already been made to third parties. After VML clearly outlined the correct position to RTE, its lawyers confirmed that the programme and/or its reporting would be “fair and balanced”, “fair, impartial and objective”, “fair to all interests concerned”, “fair and accurate”, “broadcast in good faith” and contain “nothing misleading, unsavoury or malicious” nor any “distortions or untruths”. VML was further assured by RTE’s lawyers that it “adheres to high standards of journalistic ethics” and follows “proper journalistic standards”.

Unfortunately, this did not happen: despite withdrawing many of the untrue and defamatory allegations, when broadcasting its programme on 5th February, RTE retained a number of others.

Accordingly, on 13th February 2015, following the advice of Senior and Junior Counsel, VML issued proceedings against RTE and Mr Ryan. The proceedings are for defamation, procuring a breach of confidence, malicious falsehood and other wrongs, for which aggravated and exemplary damages are sought. It is expected that other parties will issue similar proceedings in the English High Court.

The true position, as previously stated to but ignored by RTE, is as follows:
• In 2004, VML effectively came under the control of the British Government.
• In 2011, VML was sold by the British Government to an English private company.
• In 2014, VML was sold by that English company to its present owner.
• The beneficial owners of VML’s shares and debt are those appearing on the public register.
• VML’s current owner and directors are entirely distinct from the previous owners and directors.
