My quataloos are all on: all claims withdrawn with prejudice, with no more money changing hands (tip of the hat to our distinguished lawyers who joined us recently and opined this as well), and all parties returned to their respective positions prior to entering any agreements. In other words, my bet is that IH relinquishes any and all licenses to Leonardo's IP and the license agreement as well--gone.
1) If IH don't believe Rossi's tech works, it's easy for them to relinquish the IP
2) but if they do, it's more difficult to understand the reason.
And they probably do, as T. Darden got several times high COP with it.
And if IH believes it works, It will be a heartbreaker to relinquish the IP !
Just think of all the trillions of $ ! So why would Darden be forced to settle in such a case :
- because Rossi had good proofs the one year test was the GPT for Darden ?
- and because Darden / IH would not be in a position to pay several hundreds of millions should he lose the case ? But it's easy to bankrupt IH, unless Darden had lots of his personal money at risk...
