In a recent Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) Managing Patents article, Richard Kelly is quoted regarding Google's $900 million bid for Nortel's patents. Nortel filed for bankruptcy in 2009 and the bankruptcy auction is expected to be held later this year. Mr. Kelly commented that "this could get to a little bit of insanity, but it is where mobile communications is going." "If Google can pull this off, they’ve probably got a pretty good buy." "It certainly is not good news for RIM if Google is handling this and they want to be 4G,” said Kelly. “The same could be said for others."
