"The independent technology examiner that we and GTL would employ, would use facts to the greatest extent possible, and would examine the economic value of each company's portfolio," said Smith. "The following components of economic value should be considered:
- Patents Issued
- Patents Pending
- In Force Patents
- License Dollars Collected
- Years Filing Patents
- Total Inventors on Patents
- Future Patents Expected to Be Filed
- License Agreements (Number) with Competitors
- Value of Claims Within Patents
- IT Development Process That Generates Patents
- Number of Patentable Products."
"So my offer to Global Tel Link is straight-forward – take the patent portfolio challenge bake off? It's almost a rhetorical question – if I was them – I would decline because they understand they would lose. They are scared to death of comparing the quantity, quality, and value generated on our respective patent portfolios," Smith stressed.
