For those that think they missed out on VPLM stock after Tuesday’s 115% run, we have news for all of you. There’s a lot more room for VPLM stock to run after scoring a huge win in court against Apple.
We at Insider Financial have been covering Voip-Pal.com Inc since 2017 and are familiar with VPLM stock’s big moves. Just look at the last big spike in 2017.
In this article, we will take a look at the news VPLM stock received in 2017 and just recently. We know that many have been holding on for a long time and that patience is about to pay off.
First up, here’s a little background info for those not familiar with VPLM stock. VOIP-Pal.com Inc. is considered the global leader in cost-efficient technology that enables high-volume text, voice, and digital multi-media communications.
The biggest names in technology utilize Telco pioneer Voip-Pal’s patent portfolio. All of these companies seek to grow their businesses by offering increasingly integrated Internet communications services, including simple-to-use telecom and mobile payments. VOIP-Pal makes this possible.
VOIP-Pal’s suite of patents offers a major change in the way communication traffic is managed across the Internet and telephone networks. VOIP-Pal’s intellectual property covers the classification and routing of all voice, messaging, and data traffic across telephone networks and the Internet.
VPLM Stock 2017 Price Spike
The 2017 price spike in VPLM stock was ignited after the company received favorable decisions from the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board. The final decisions in the two Apple IPRs, IPR2016-01201, and IPR2016-01198 confirmed the patentability of all challenged claims. Additionally, institution was denied in the three AT&T IPR petitions, IPR2017-01382, IPR2017-01383, and IPR2017-01384, and the two Apple follow-on petitions IPR2017-01398 and IPR2017-01399. Emil Malak, CEO of VOIP-Pal, said at the time:
“This has been an extremely difficult 18-month long ordeal for our Company while we have been working diligently to successfully defend our patents against eight IPR petitions. We are fortunate to have the best technical and legal teams supporting us during this process. We are also extremely grateful to be represented by the best intellectual property attorneys, Knobbe Martens, who have stuck with us every step of the way for nearly eight years. We appreciate the support of our loyal shareholders during this difficult process.”
Why Didn’t VPLM Stock Keep Running?
The reason VPLM stock has languished since then is that the validations were just the first step (a major step, but an early one nonetheless) towards monetization on the patents that serve as the foundation of the ongoing litigation. The next step is finding a way to monetize the patents, be that through seeing the litigation to completion or coming to some agreement ahead of completion with either a third party (one that will fund the litigation and pay Voip for the right to do so and – in turn – for the rights to a portion of any monetary gain at outcome) or with the parties involved (the big tech companies) in terms of an advanced settlement.
VPLM Stock Latest News
Fast forward to September 29th, and we get the news we all have been waiting for since. The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) ruled in favor of Voip-Pal in its long legal battle against Apple.
In a decision announced on September 25, 2020, the Court upheld the December 21, 2018 ruling by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) denying Apple’s request for sanctions. The CAFC also affirmed the PTAB’s ruling that Voip-Pal’s ’815 and ’005 patents are non-obvious. Moreover, the Court rejected Apple’s bid to invalidate certain claims that had not been declared ineligible in a parallel district court case.
More Rulings Coming
VOIP-Pal is currently the plaintiff in multiple patent infringement lawsuits in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, Waco Division. The defendants are some of the largest companies in the world and have a combined market cap of $5.73 trillion.
- Facebook Inc. and WhatsApp Inc.; Civil Action No. 20-cv-267
- Google LLC; Civil Action No. 20-cv-269
- Amazon.com Inc. et al.; Civil Action No. 20-cv-272
- Apple Inc.; Civil Action No. 20-cv-275
- Verizon Communications, Inc., et al.; Civil Action No. 6:20-cv-00327
- AT&T, Inc., et al.,; Civil Action No. 6:20-cv-00325
Additionally, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington D.C. has scheduled oral argument for November 3, 2020, in Voip-Pal’s cases against Apple and Amazon, Case Nos. 20-1241, 20-1244. We expect the company to prevail. As Emil Malak, CEO of VOIP-Pal, stated:
“We are very pleased with this outcome and the court’s decision to once again uphold our intellectual property. Our patents have been challenged with IPR’s 12 times and each time we have prevailed. This latest decision affirming the PTAB’s ruling is vindication of the validity of our patents.”
Currently trading with a market cap of $58 million, patience in VPLM stock is finally starting to pay off. The September 29th ruling is the second step of the process. The key here is that VPLM stock keeps winning. At some point, we believe Apple, Facebook, Google, Amazon, Verizon, and AT&T will settle with VOIP-Pal. It’s a true David vs. Goliath story with David continuing to win each battle. We believe it’s in the best interests of the big tech companies to settle. What’s a fair amount? Say $50 million for each? That would be $300 million for VPLM stock. That would give VPLM stock a price of $.18 a share. If the amount is $100 million from each, that would be $.36 a share. As you can see, there’s still a lot more room to run in VPLM stock.
As always, good luck to all (except the shorts)!
