Its really a good strategy of buying patents rather than buying the whole company. I guess that the patent war is far from over. @Dylan, you could have included a brief description of the areas in which the patents could be applicable. This would complete the article for readers.

18 patents for $11M, roughly $600k per patent, is that typical these days? Kris
