This morning I received an email from ICAP - Ocean Tomo informing that they are the exclusive broker for about 700 patents in the Walker Digital portfolio. Presumably in the portfolio is the Priceline 'name your price' patent. I wonder if William Shatner, television advertising persona for Priceline and formerly Captain Kirk of Startrek, is going to be doing some 'patent price chopping.'
I looked at the 371 patents currently assigned to Walker Digital at the USPTO, a large number of which are Internet e-commerce patents. Also curious in that portfolio are 30 patents by Bruce Schneier, Internet security expert.
I'm trying to track down the exact list of patents offered for review.
