08:13 EDTGOOG, VRNGVringo updates on USPTO proceedings
Vringo (VRNG) provided an update on proceedings at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, or USPTO, regarding patents owned by its wholly owned subsidiary, I/P Engine. The USPTO issued a first, non-final rejection of the challenged claims in U.S. Patent No. 6,314,420, which is one of the two patents asserted in litigation against Google (GOOG), as described below. This result is not unlike the previous three proceedings that Google initiated, which were ultimately resolved in I/P Engine's favor following I/P Engine's submission of rebuttal responses and meetings with the Examiners. The USPTO has previously issued a reexamination certificate confirming that all of the claims of U.S. Patent No. 6,775,664, the other patent asserted in litigation against Google, remain valid and unchanged, and no reexaminations are pending with respect to the '664 patent. I/P Engine will continue to follow the USPTO procedures to uphold the validity of the '420 patent.

08:15 EDTGOOGSalesforce acquisition still possible, says JMP Securities
After Salesforce reported stronger than expected results, JMP Securities indicated that the results, along with statements by the company's CEO, make an acquisition seem less likely. However, the firm continues to believe that Google (GOOG), Oracle (ORCL), or Microsoft (MSFT) could buy the company. All three potential acquirers have significant cash and strong potential synergies with Salesforce, and the world is moving to the cloud, the firm explained. It raised its price target on Salesforce to $80 from $75 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

11:50 EDTVRNGVringo says ZTE violated Brazilian court injunction
Vringoannounced that court-appointed experts in Brazil have issued a report stating that ZTE violated a Brazilian court injunction. Vringo received a preliminary injunction against ZTE on April 15, 2014, prohibiting ZTE from manufacturing, using, offering for sale, selling, installing, testing, or importing any 3G, 4G, or LTE infrastructure equipment in Brazil. The Federal and State Courts of Rio de Janeiro have, six times, denied ZTE's appeal of this injunction. Based on evidence of a potential violation of the injunction, the State Court of Rio de Janeiro appointed experts to investigate ZTE's activities in Brazil. Vringo now plans to file a motion for contempt with the Court requesting that punitive measures be taken against ZTE for its violation of the injunction.

11:47 EDTGOOGAmazon unlikely hurt by Google Buy button in next 3 years, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said he does not expect Google's (GOOG) addition of a "Buy" button for mobile e-commerce hurting Amazon.com (AMZN) over the next 1 to 3 years, but he does believe Google's plan presents a longer-term threat to "chip away" at Amazon's growth rate. However, Munster thinks it will be "next to impossible" for Google to replicate Amazon's core infrastructure and customer experience and he keeps an Overweight rating and $475 price target on Amazon shares.
09:12 EDTVRNGVringo announces favorable ruling by Brazilian court
Vringo announced that the Brazilian Federal Court in Rio de Janeiro has denied ZTE's motion for a preliminary injunction against Vringo Infrastructure. Vringo received a preliminary injunction against ZTE on April 15, 2014. Since that time, ZTE has sought to overturn the injunction by filing numerous appeals. ZTE's most recent attempt to overturn the injunction was a lawsuit filed by ZTE's Brazilian subsidiary. In that lawsuit, ZTE requested a preliminary injunction against Vringo, seeking the Brazilian court impose a royalty rate for a temporary license between the parties. The Court denied ZTE's request for preliminary injunction based solely on the evidence presented in ZTE's own filing. Among other points, the Court found that there was no evidence that ZTE was willing to effectively negotiate a license prior to Vringo's filing an infringement lawsuit against ZTE in the Rio de Janeiro State Court. Following this ruling, the preliminary injunction against ZTE remains in place.
