Spoils

A group of companies including Apple, RIM and Microsoft will buy 6,000 patents and patent applications of bankrupt Nortel for USD4.5B, C|Net reports.

I happen to remember Nortel well, as it used to be one of our largest clients for many years, and I also remember an unsuccessful repitch which got us locked in a Toronto meeting room for several days in february. I do remember how depressed we were when we lost, only to hear the company going bankrupt mere months later.

It’s one of those cases where the sum of the pieces is more than the whole, I guess…
